#TBT

None of us will ever forget the late Ivan, a legend in his own time. We’re throwing it back to a picture that never ceases to make us smile; those paint-filled lips are a true sign of a master at work.

Skilled survivors!

The warthogs’ incredible ability to adapt to new threats has kept this species off the endangered list! #OnlyZooATL

The lesser kudu

They may be lesser in size than their cousins, the greater kudus, but they are just as beautiful.  These gorgeous spiral horns found on the males usually have two to two-and-a-half twists! #OnlyZooATL

Do you know why the muntjac is also called the “barking deer?”
The muntjac was given this nickname because of the sharp barking sound it makes as an alarm call when danger is present. This vocalization is also common during their breeding season. #OnlyZooATL

Mondays are better when a panda is involved.

Especially when it’s Idgie, our red panda! #ZAPandas

Do you know why zebras have stripes?

Although scientists aren’t sure, there are many theories out there. Some say it’s a form of camouflage. It’s also been said the stripes may dissuade insects or act as a natural sunscreen. #OnlyZooATL

The "gator gals" in Scaly Slimy Spectacular have been named!

Our wonderful Zoo Atlanta Volunteers enjoyed the opportunity to name the girls. Each has a name representative of her Georgia native heritage. Ready for it? 1) ROSALYNN, for former First Lady Rosalynn Carter; 2) TALLULAH, for Georgia's own Tallulah Gorge; 3) TALISA, a Native American Creek name meaning "beautiful water," and 4) SAVANNAH, for Georgia's oldest city. See these lovely ladies this weekend!

Color confusion

If you think the Philippine palm pitviper is only yellow, guess again. They can also be green or a reddish color. Believe it or not, even babies from the same litter can be markedly different colors.

International Red Panda Day

Saturday, September 19 is International Red Panda Day. There are fewer than 10,000 red pandas believed to remain in the wild, largely as a result of habitat loss and deforestation. More effective monitoring can help develop strategies to better protect these pandas and their habitats. Learn more about how you can help on 9/19: http://www.zooatlanta.org/home/article_content/red_panda_day?ff_s=U-JZMp

Happy Birthday to one of our famous giant pandas. Lun Lun turns 18 today!

On August 25, 1997, she was born in China. We’ll be celebrating her on September 5 with a special double event! Yang Yang’s birthday is right around the corner; he turns 18 on September 9. #ZAPandas

This frog changes colors

The time of day depends on what color you see! The lemur leaf frog is green during the day, but changes to a purplish-brown color at night. #Ssspectacular #OnlyZooATL

Loud calling that can be heard up to two miles away

That’s what the crested screamer’s courtship involves! These birds form monogamous relationships that last their lifetime, an estimated 15 years. #OnlyZooATL
