Much-needed cuteness today: #Koalafornia's newest resident had her first check-up. Cambee gave birth in November, but her adorable little joey just recently emerged from mom's pouch.

Red ruffed lemurs are considered to be one of the world's most endangered primates, so every birth is significant. Today, we're excited to introduce the 1st baby born at our facility in 13 years. Info: http://bit.ly/lemur601

Our new baby #takin, Hsi Hsi, lives up to her name which means "playful monkey" in Chinese.

I'm confused. I speak fluent Manderin, and have no idea what 'Hsi Hsi' is. I wonder who came up with it? Weird.

"Galápago" is one of the Spanish words for tortoise. We're proud to partner with the Charles Darwin Research Station on the Galápagos Islands to fund a tortoise-rearing facility and help with captive propagation and release programs. #SeniorCitizens #ShellYeah #BetterThanNinjas
