The average high temperature last week was 93 degrees here in Atlanta

The pandas had no clue! Their dayrooms stay in the panda-perfect 60s. Keepers wearing sweatshirts in July aren’t crazy; they’re panda keepers!

In the wild, giant pandas can be found in a few mountain ranges in central China, in Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu provinces. They once lived in lowland areas, but farming, forest clearing, and other development now restrict giant pandas to the mountains. (photo credit: Allyson Busch)

Look for the baby in this beautiful family!

Our first Chilean flamingo hatchling of 2016 (hatched on July 24) with its proud mom and dad, first-time parents 81 (aka “Big Blue,” right) and 90, left. Great parents so far to their first offspring, aka “Baby Blue.” More hatchlings on the way by week’s end! (Photo by Monica Halpin) #OnlyZooATL

Jacob considered an alternate career as a goat model, but he loves kids too much to give up the petting zoo. I’m glad he made that choice. Thank you for tagging along for my #TakeoverTuesday today! – Michelle Elliott, Keeper II, Mammals

The tanuki tend to be very protective of their food in the summer, so we feed them separately. Here’s Thor enjoying his dinner in their behind-the-scenes den area. #TakeoverTuesday - Michelle Elliott, Keeper II, Mammals

The naked mole rats move their food around to today’s storage area. It’s fun to watch them work together to get the colony in order. #TakeoverTuesday - Michelle Elliott, Keeper II, Mammals

Jacob and Snow White are the petting zoo’s only full siblings who aren’t twins. However, they do have the same birthday- exactly one year apart! #TakeoverTuesday - Michelle Elliott, Keeper II, Mammals

The naked mole rats don't know it's summer. They have no concept of degrees Fahrenheit. They're chillin' underground … crawl into their secret lives and chill with 'em! #OnlyZooATL

Sometimes it’s embarrassing to hear yourself talking to the animals, evident in this video. But they’re so cute! Even we can’t help but baby talk to them every once in a while. #TakeoverTuesday - Michelle Elliott, Keeper II, Mammals

This is Jacob’s favorite spot to hang out when he’s looking for attention. He gets a lot of brushing and ends up in a ton of family photos while hanging out on the stumps! #TakeoverTuesday - Michelle Elliott, Keeper II, Mammals
