On your next visit, stop by the Zoo’s Cypress Swamp for a stroll on our spiffy new boardwalk. The main boardwalk decking and handrails have recently been replaced. #nczoo #northcarolinazoo

#DYK a blue tongued skink is native to Australia and uses its cobalt blue colored tongue to act as a deterrent to predators? #NCZoo #NorthCarolinaZoo #skink

The North Carolina Zoo recently received a pair of Eastern Indigo Snakes, as part of a cooperative breeding program. Eastern Indigos are the largest snakes native to the United States. These beautiful snakes get their names from the iridescent coloration seen on their scales. In addition to their large size and unique coloration, they are known for their ability to feed upon venomous snakes and will eat mammals, birds and even small tortoises. Unfortunately, they are a threatened species, due to habitat loss and degradation. Stop by Cypress Swamp to check them out! #nczoo #northcarolinazoo #snakes

For the seventh gift of Christmas the North Carolina Zoo shared with me…
seven playful gorillas
six African elephants
five thick billed murres
four spotted turtles
three Bali mynahs
two polar bears
and a crested wood partridge snacking in a cocoa tree

Happy World Buzzard Day! Did you know that many other animals rely on vultures, sometimes called buzzards, in order to find food? Research by a North Carolina Zoo biologist and colleague demonstrated that in Africa, hyenas can find a carcass nearly twice as fast when they use vultures – who give them a cue from above. #buzzardday #buzzards #vultures #nczoo #northcarolinazoo
