#TBT to when we had baby capybaras! Not much is cuter than two little baby capybaras snuggling, wouldn’t you agree?!

Are You Blue?
Blue morpho butterflies are, in fact, not blue. They are brown. However, microscopic structures on the scales of their wings absorb all wavelengths of light except blue, which they reflect. This structural coloration, unlike a pigment, can be altered by changing how light hits the surface; if one moves a morpho wing into light hitting it at just the proper angle, the wing appears brown, which is its true color! See these beautiful butterflies at Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium!

Audubon Nature Institute is deeply saddened to announce the death of “Buck,” one of Audubon Aquarium’s two southern sea otters. Buck died today at the age of 18 after his health began to dramatically decline over the past few weeks. During that time, Buck has been under the constant care of our skilled veterinary team and his training staff. Lab results are still pending to determine the exact cause of death.

“Buck was full of personality and he will be sorely missed by our staff, volunteers and guests,” said Audubon Aquarium of the Americas Director Rich Toth. “He was a beloved individual and ambassador for his wild brethren. Buck’s long, rich life is a testament to the outstanding care he received at the Aquarium.”

The life span for a southern sea otter in the wild is approximately 12 years. At 18, Buck was the fifth oldest sea otter under human care. The average life span under human care is late teens and rarely into their early 20s.

Buck had been found stranded and was rehabilitated by Monterey Bay Aquarium in 1997. When it was determined that he was unable to return to the wild, he was moved to the Audubon Aquarium with fellow sea otter Emma in 1999.

Audubon welcomes your positive comments, memories, and condolences to animal training staff who are especially affected by this loss.

Middle-Aged at Eighty
Can you guess the oldest residents of Audubon Zoo? Audubon Zoo celebrates their birthdays today June 1, although they have been here so long we’re not really sure when they hatched! Magma and Feldspar are the Aldabra tortoises (Aldabrachelys gigantea) in the exhibit across from Monkey Hill. Magma came to Audubon in 1968, and Feldspar followed ten years later. They both love apples and carrots, and are target-trained for vet procedures. While Feldspar is known as the grumpy one, they both love attention. They are the oldest reptiles in Audubon Zoo’s collection, estimated to be in their 80s and weighing in at 500 pounds each. The oldest known Aldabra tortoise is 170 years old, so here’s hoping we celebrate with Magma and Feldspar for many years to come.

Fleeting Jellies
Don’t wait too long to check out the Blubber Jellyfish (Catostylus mosaicus) at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas, as they’ll only be on display for another few weeks. With beautiful colorations, Blubbers are among the few jellyfish that are commercially viable. Many Asian countries consider dried Blubbers to be fine cuisine!

Impressive Fangs
Check out the nursery window in Reptile Encounter. You’ll see one of three Gaboon vipers (Bitis gabonica) in Audubon Zoo’s collection. All three were born at Cincinnati Zoo two years ago. This is a beautiful snake with the distinguishing characteristic of having fangs up to two inches long! Primarily nocturnal, these snakes are native to Africa’s rainforests and are known to strike quickly when prey animals like rodents or birds have the misfortune to happen by.
