🎉 Happy birthday to the Mexican wolves born 2 years ago at Brookfield Zoo: Pictured in 2016: Azul (left), Ela (middle) and Rio (right). Two other puppies born in this litter, Blaze and Brooke, were placed with the wild Elk Horn Pack in Arizona as part of the Mexican wolf recovery program’s cross-fostering efforts. 🐺 More on Wolf Recovery Program at CZS.org/wolfpup-update⠀

Layla, a 2,300-pound eastern black rhinoceros recently underwent the first CT scan ever performed on this species to help Brookfield Zoo veterinarians determine next steps for treating her for a life-threatening nasal blockage. The process of moving Layla to and from the machine was extraordinarily delicate, and required a team of nearly 40 zoo staff, plus technicians from Sound Technologies and NeuroLogica, who donated their services. @SamsungNeurologica generously donated the use of its BodyTom®, the world’s first battery-powered, portable, 32-slice CT scanner.

We are committed to providing the animals with the highest possible levels of care and welfare, and part of that care starts with our enrichment program. EnrichTrak helps us schedule enrichment items throughout the zoo. #wildlysurprising #enrichment #lion #penguin #EnrichTrak #brookfieldzoo
