Iowa players Levi and Landan Paulsen, Nick Niemann, and Cedrick Lattimore had the chance the afternoon of December 25, 2019 to meet a few special animals. They met Zena, a two-toed sloth, Jambo, an African pygmy falcon, and Shakira, a legless lizard. Afterwards, they joined the rest of the team in touring the rest of the exhibits. Some players were accompanied by their families visiting for all the Holiday Bowl game festivities. Many fans also toured the zoo today after flying in to see the game on Friday.
