WICHITA, Kan. The Sedgwick County Zoo and the creatures who call it home are getting into the basketball spirit.

The zoo says visitors Friday will see many animals celebrating the NCAA Tournament's arrival with "basketball-themed enrichment activities."

In Wichita, fans with tickets to games at Intrust Bank Arena are offered a discount on zoo admission. The Sedgwick County Zoo says basketball fans are encouraged to bring their NCAA Tournament ticket stubs for $5 off zoo admission. That offer is good through March 25.

The Sedgwick County Zoo, promoted as "the No. 1 outdoor family tourist attraction in Kansas," says it's home to more than 3,000 animals of nearly 400 species.
