Can you solve this ZOOdunnit and find out who’s been causing some mischief? 

Brush off your detective hat and magnifying glass and head over to Franklin Park Zoo during February school vacation week!

Visit Detective Headquarters in the Tropical Forest, where you’ll make your trusty clue notebook, receive your mission for the day, and learn about the suspected animal culprits. Along to help you crack the puzzle is Maxine, the two-toed sleuth. Don’t be deceived by the slow reputation – Maxine is quite the quick-witted sloth, and ready to get to the bottom of this case as swiftly as possible.
