Watch: Como Park Zoo in St. Paul was a category on "Jeopardy"

What is Como Park Zoo?

Como Park Zoo got its chance to shine when it was the subject of an entire category on "Jeopardy."

The St. Paul zoo featured on the perennially popular NBC show on Friday's broadcast, with video footage showing some of the zoo's animals being used to question the three contestants.

A giraffe, a golden frog, a snake (we'll not tell you what kind ... it's a question), a snow leopard and one of the zoo's polar bears all make an appearance.

It was a fitting subject for contestant and eventual winner Rob Worman, who lives in Edina and won for the third day in a row.

The Pioneer Press reports the zoo was contacted by "Jeopardy" last year, with footage being taken late last summer.
