Ssspectacular

A native of the scrublands of the Kalahari and Namib deserts, the Cape cobra has one of the most powerful venoms of any cobra species.

Rare or just secretive?

The conservation status of the roughneck monitor is currently unknown because of a lack of data on wild populations, so we feel doubly fortunate to be able to observe them at Scaly Slimy Spectacular: The Amphibian and Reptile Experience.

Independence is a work in progress ...

Baby sloths stay near their mothers for about a year. Over that time, they become more and more independent. As you can see, Bonnie's little guy or gal is already working on that!

Young deceptions 

The young of the Georgia native cottonmouth have a distinctive yellowish-green coloration on their tails. When they're on the hunt, they wiggle these colored tails near their heads to attract prey such as frogs.

Tuesday going slowly? 

A baby sloth won't make it go any faster, but it sure will make it adorable.

Your Monday dose of Mei ....

Mei Lun and Mei Huan will be 2 next week. We're not sure who coined the phrase, "Terrible Twos," but we have a hard time believing there could ever be anything "terrible" about these girls!

Subterranean chic

Summer? Fall? Winter? Spring? Seasons don't matter much to the naked mole rats, who spend their entire lives underground. These fascinating eusocial mammals structure their lives around the service of a queen, just as bees and ants do.

Play!

It's one of the joys of growing up gorilla. Henry gives a boost to baby sister Andi.

Why do we go "Squee!" over pandas?

There's a word for it: neoteny. The word refers to the retaining of immature characteristics into adulthood. It's why giant pandas appear cute to so many people, no matter how old they are. Yang Yang has this quality in spades!
