HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg Zoo opened their long-awaited new exhibit the Snuffleupagus Exhibit Sunday, April 1.

Rick Taylor, Executive Director of the Hattiesburg Convention Commission, says the new edition comes from a borough in metropolitan New York, and they are excited to have him down.

"We heard that Snuffleupagus has gotten tired of the cold winters with all those Nor'easters coming through and wanted to come south, says Taylor. "He brought Oscar and Big Bird with him but we hear they're going to go back up north but Snuffy is going to stay with us."

Taylor says the Snuffleupagus exhibit is expected to be open until the end of the week.
