BIRTHDAY GIRL: We celebrated a special 8th birthday today for the brave Layla Rhino at Brookfield Zoo. It was an important milestone: since January 2018, Layla has undergone two dozen medical procedures and staged surgeries to treat a life-threatening, obstructive sinusitis that was blocking her ability to breathe. Without the advanced medical care available at Brookfield Zoo, Layla would likely not have reached her 8th birthday. BTW the nutritious cake featured a variety of fruits and vegetables frozen in flavored ice blocks, decorated with leafy greens, topped with a watermelon and carrot. #LaylaRhino #Layla #rhino #rhinoceros #brookfieldzoo

"All the better to hear you with!" Okapis' huge ears help them in using infrasound (sounds so low humans can't hear them) to communicate with each other. We'd like to communicate our love for the Okapis of the world. Happy #WorldOkapiDay!
