Vulture Fact #2 Poisoning is a significant problem for vultures. Lead ammunition used by hunters gets left behind in the carrion vultures feed on, and some poachers have even been known to purposely poison vultures.

Vulture Fact #1 The best way to help vultures is to learn about what vultures live in your area and what threats they may be facing. Spread the word on what can be done to help these amazing animals; it could be as simple as taking a closer look at pesticide use in your area. #OnlyZooATL

The National bird Bald eagles are brought into rehabilitation centers for injuries caused by cars, power lines and hunting. All eagles who are candidates for release into the wild are released into the wild. Sequoyah, the Zoo’s bald eagle, experienced a wing injury that affected his ability to survive in the wild. He was in need of a lifelong home in human care, and we are glad he found one here! #OnlyZooATL

Isn't it funny, they don't seem to be mean or bite. I just love them, I want a baby to raise. Babies are very comical.

What do Mertens’ water monitors eat?

They eat anything they can catch! This includes fish, frogs, insects and other invertebrates. Mertens’ water monitors can track the scent of their prey over long distances and they can even detect buried eggs. Check out the Mertens’ water monitor in Scaly Slimy Spectacular. #Ssspectacular #OnlyZooATL

Why do rough knob-tailed geckos have plump tails? They use their tails as a fat storage organ! #Ssspectacular

What do the keepers need to know? The keepers of the Primate Department spend a few months learning the likes, dislikes and the daily routines of the gorillas, as well as the individual preferences of each. Read more on what the keepers do at our Keeper Blog on http://buff.ly/1Jy6F8K

How long do vultures live?

Vultures have been reported to live over 40 years! Unfortunately, vulture populations are declining in many parts of the world due to poisoning, habitat loss and other factors. Vultures help protect us, so help us protect them. International Vulture Awareness Day is September 5.
