Congrats to Kiazi @sdzsafaripark on the birth of her 1st calf! The female is the 96th southern white #rhino born at our sister facility, and her arrival provides additional evidence that scientists may have solved the reproduction riddle of this species. Check out Zoonooz for more info. #rayofhope #EndExtinction #rhinocalf #sdzsafaripark

This #EndangeredSpeciesDay, we’re celebrating the fact that 🐼s are no longer endangered! Conservation works. San Diego Zoo Global and our many partners are leading the fight to #EndExtinction. Click the link in our bio and join us.

Miss Sassy Pants (aka Devi) is on her way to being a grown-up #hippo, so this #throwback is dedicated to her. Tap the link in our bio for more info on Devi's whereabouts. #MissSassyPants #tbt❤️ #hiphopanonymous #sandiegozoo

In 1997 the Zoo's second #albino #koala was born. He was named Onya-Birri, meaning "ghost boy." Despite the flurry of excitement around his appearance, Onya-Birri turned out to be a calm, confident koala that was nonchalant about all the attention. 🐨 #ghostboy #koalafornia #throwback

Good things come to those who wait, and when you’re a 🐯 looking for a meal, patience is key. These #bigcats are patient hunters and can move slowly and quietly, stalking their prey for 20 or 30 minutes. #stalker #tiger #tigertuesday #goodthingscometothosewhowait (📷: Paul E.M.)

Have you seen these fabulous feathers strutting around the Zoo? The Indian peafowl is the national bird of India and is protected in that country. To Hindus, the peafowl is a sacred bird; the spots on the peacock’s train symbolize the eyes of the gods. #peacockperfection #birdsofafeather #strutyourstuff (📷: Jerry Phan)

Ilangha's #TongueOutTuesday game is on point. 😛 A #cheetah has smaller teeth and larger nasal passages than other big cats, which may be an adaptation that allows the cat to take in more air during the recovery period after a sprint. #animalfact #catchmeifyoucan #spottedattheZoo (📷: Deric Wagner)

Your Monday needs more #mongoose. 😊 With a length of 7 to 11 inches nose to tail, the dwarf mongoose is the smallest carnivore in Africa. #mongoosemonday #kopjekids #sdzooAfricaRocks (photo: Ion Moe)

The 🦏 gets its name from its most famous feature: horns. The word #rhinoceros comes from the Greek words rhino (nose) & ceros (horn). A rhino's horn is made of keratin, the same material that makes up our fingernails & hair.
