Heather R. brings us today's #panda update! #ZAPandas #OnlyZooATL

Yesterday, we fed out the last of the bamboo shoots for this season. The pandas and the keepers are totally bummed that shoot season has come to its inevitable end for the year. Bamboo shoot season is the best time of the year for us, but unfortunately, it only lasts for three to four weeks. Of course, we have bamboo to feed the pandas now that the shoots are gone, but it always takes a couple of days for the pandas to adjust to not having shoots, so we will have four grumpy pandas on our hands this weekend. No worries for us, though! We keepers have been through this before and will do some extra biscuit feedings and enrichment items to take the pandas' minds off of bamboo shoots. They will be just fine!
Heather R.
Senior Keeper, Carnivores

We have a new World of Wild Theater season starting soon and yesterday, staff were able to get a preview of it!
Let’s just say, “it’s a hoot!” #BirdBookLive is our new interactive concept where we take questions right from social media and answer them live during our new bird presentations. If you have bird questions, make sure to ask them using #BirdBookLive. #OnlyZooATL

Lemur leaf frogs might be green during the day, but they actually turn a purplish brown color at night! This acts as camouflage from predators. #OnlyZooATL

“I can safely say all of us keepers love the animals. It doesn’t matter if we work with snakes or birds or elephants or naked mole rats or giraffes or alligators or lions. We care for and adore the animals immensely. So when they leave Zoo Atlanta (and us) for a new experience at a different zoo, it’s emotional for us.”

You often hear us wishing safe travels to our animals as they embark on journeys to different zoos. If you’re interested in how some of those animals are, check out our recent Keeper Blog post from May 23. Visit zooatlanta.org/where-are-they-now/ .
