Black mambas get their name not from their skin color, which tends to be olive to gray, but rather from the blue-black color of the inside of their mouth, which they display when threatened. #SSSpectacular #OnlyZooATL

There is much more to the blue crane’s coloring than just blue! The feathers of the crown and forehead are light grayish white, while the cheeks, ear coverts and nape are dark ashy gray, which they raise (or fluff) during threat displays, producing a distinctive cobra-like look.

Did you know that the eastern bongo is a critically endangered species? Zoo Atlanta is a member of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) Bongo Species Survival Plan (SSP), which actively seeks to preserve a diverse population of bongos in zoological settings and has reintroduced zoo-born bongos to the wild. #Conservation #OnlyZooATL

Heart Month fun fact: In 2009, Ozzie the western lowland gorilla, then 48 years old, became the first gorilla ever to participate in a voluntary blood pressure reading -- a breakthrough that paved the way for other zoos to begin training apes for collecting cardiac-related data for use by the Great Ape Heart Project.

The great thing about our giant panda cubs? They love the cold. So visit the Zoo this weekend and spend a little time with Mei Lun and Mei Huan!

Anthony Temmer you don't find twin panda in the wild. A panda mother would only raise 1 and leave the other to perish. It's what they do. Not like other bears that have their cubs in dens/caves.
