Did you know that rain is an integral part of how Lemur tree frogs perpetuate the species? AND Lemur tree frogs were only recently discovered?? You can see this fascinating creature in our Reptile and Amphibian Room in the Children's Zoo.

Friday Fact: microtrash (broken glass, bottle caps, etc) is a big problem for wild condor nestlings. If you see it - pick it up and VIOLA! you took Action for Wildlife!
We work with @ventanawildlifesociety to treat and release condors with lead poisoning, microtrash and other issues. Your support helps condors in the wild too - GOOD JOB!

Adorable baby condor photo @takepart - thank you.

Do NOT hire this moving crew! Seriously tho, cardboard boxes make great enrichment for our spotted hyenas. Check out Tusker in the background going rogue... ZooKeeper Virginia took this fun🎥 !
