It's breeding season for our African penguins. Our Keepers are excited to share that we have two fertile penguin eggs that they're keeping their eyes on. How do they know they have two fertile eggs? They perform a process called candling. This is when they hold the egg up to the light and look for a network of blood cells, this indicates that the embryo is developing. Once they're finished they return the eggs to their parents who continue to incubate them. Can you tell which egg is fertile? Scroll through the photos, is it egg A or egg B? Keep scrolling for the answer. 📷: Zoo Photographer, John Oakes

The gibbons are hanging out this Sunday, are you? Many confuse gibbons for monkeys, but they’re actually small apes. #sundayfunday #sundayvibes #dayatthemnzoo #funfact

Did someone say #Caturday? Pumas are known to be able to jump 18 feet up from the ground into a tree. They can do this because of their powerful hind legs. #FunFact #CaturdayVibes #caturdayeveryday #dayatthemnzoo #mnzoo

The look when you've bundled up for the first cold day of the season...Escape the cold with our titi monkeys on the Tropics Trail. #winterishere #dayatthemnzoo #fridaymood #mnzoo

Bertie, our pregnant Malayan tapir, is doing great. You can still see her daily on the Tropics Trail. She's enjoying her rest before the baby comes. This will be Bertie's third calf. The calf is expected to be born late December-early January. Enjoy this #throwback photo of Bertie with her last calf, Ketawa. #babyanimal #throwbackthursday #tbt #dayatthemnzoo #mnzoo

Cold weather got you down? Come enjoy the Tropics Trail at the @mnzoo. Take a break from the dropping temps & stroll the lush, warm trail. #dayatthemnzoo #winteriscoming #winterishere #onlyinmn

We hope you have a thoughtful #Caturday! Did you know that a tiger's stripes are skin deep, and not just on their fur?! Each tiger has their own unique pattern, like a human's fingerprint. 📷: Flickr Fan, Tiggr222 #dayatthemnzoo #mnzoo #savewildlife #funfact #savewildtigers

#Babyanimal alert! We're excited to welcome a new endangered African penguin chick into our colony. Born Nov. 21, the new chick is doing well behind the scenes with her parents Snickers & Burner. 🐧#Savewildlife #cuteanimal #savingspecies #mnzoo #dayatthemnzoo

The @mnzoo is able to help species around the world through the Ulysses S. Seal Conservation Grant. One of our past grant recipients is Dr.Arnaud Desbiez, who works in the Pantanal and Cerrado biomes of South America. His teams research giant #anteaters and giant #armadillos. They are studying to see how habitat fragmentation and roads effect giant anteater populations which in turn can tell us a lot about how it may affect many animals in the area. The Minnesota Zoo has recently bought GPS collars for the Giant anteater team so that they can track them and see where they are going.

Put your hands in the air if you’re a #tamandua! It's #WorldTamanduaDay & Tupi couldn't be more excited! Tamanduas, or lesser anteaters, can be found in Mexico, Central and South America. They are considered the "lesser ant eater" only due to their size, in our hearts-they're considered great. They use their sticky 16 inch tongue (!) to eat insects in anthills & termite mounds. These little critters can eat up to 9,000 insects a day, going from 50-90 different nests/hives to find what they’re looking for.
