Zoo's new nocturnal exhibit opens this weekend

The Cincinnati Zoo is opening its new nocturnal exhibit this weekend.

Night Hunters opens Saturday, May 21 at 9 a.m. There will be a preview for zoo members Friday night from 5 to 9 p.m.

The Cat House has been under renovation for the past six months to transform the 61-year-old building into a new multi-sensory journey through the wild at night.

The Cat House still houses cats like the clouded leopard, ocelot and fishing cat, but it now houses other nocturnal predators such as the Eurasian eagle owl, vampire bats, an aardvark and a Burmese python.

The nocturnal house closed last weekend to move into the new exhibit.
