Did you know red panda fossils have been discovered in North America dating as far back as 5 million years? Today, these charismatic creatures are only found in small, isolated mountain territories above 4,000 ft. in China, Nepal, India, Bhutan, and Burma. #RedPanda #FireFox #SanDiegoZoo (: Ion Moe)
The toucan's large bill has serrated edges that help it grasp or catch its lunch. Their diet can consist of fruit , insects, tree frogs, lizards& fish. Once a full belly is achieved, toucans may playfully spar with each other before returning to their home roosting tree for the night. #ToucanTime #BirdsAreAwesome #SaveTheRainforests : Debbie Beals
#2017 was a big year. Plop down, take a break, and recuperate.
Tony (aka Mr. T) and Funani spend Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays behind-the-scenes while Otis delights guests in the large pool. During their days backstage, keepers spend time training our not-so-little boy for wellness exams and provide a variety of enrichment items. His favorite snack is beet pulp, just like his mom! We're happy to report that Mr. T is growing by leaps and bounds under the watchful eye of Funani, and visitors can see the pair Tuesday, Thursday, and weekends. Stay tuned for more hippo updates in 2018! #BabyHippo #2018
