AKRON -- The Akron Zoo is warming up your wallet with discounted prices for the upcoming winter season.

From Nov. 1 through April 30, the zoo will be open from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. daily with admission prices reduced to $6 per person.

Zoo officials say the majority of the animals are viewable during the winter months, those that can't handle the frigid temperatures will be on exhibit indoors.

Starting Dec. 1, guests will be allowed to feed the penguins through Feb. 29 when temperatures are 55 degrees or below between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tickets for that experience can be purchased at the penguin exhibit for $3.

The carousel will remain open through November.

The zoo will be closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
