Will you see Animals at the LA Zoo Lights Event?

It is unlikely guests will see any live animals at the LA Zoo Lights – Animals Aglow event. Most of the animals are off exhibit and enjoying quiet time. There are many animals and insects represented in large glowy decorations throughout the park, but we did not see any live animals on display.
