Last Monday we welcomed Pacific white-sided dolphin Piquet’s new calf! Watch the calf being born and mom and calf spending quality time together bonding. Getting to know mom is just one of the several important milestones for the calf over the next few months. Our animal care team is ensuring mom and newborn have undisturbed time together to form a strong bond. Mom and calf are currently off exhibit, but you can still follow the calf’s progress. Keep an eye out for more photos and updates in the days to come!

Just in: important fieldwork update! Shedd’s Dr. Chuck Knapp is sending updates now from the Bahamas, where he is studying the critically endangered rock iguana. So far Dr. Knapp and team have successfully collected data to assess the size and growth of the population. They’ve also conducted ultrasounds on some of the iguanas, allowing them to further investigate the physiological responses of iguanas to different types of human disturbance. Stay tuned for updates and read more about this critical work here: http://bit.ly/19Ksy9X

Me parece que son pingüinos de penacho amarillo, que viven entre otros lugares en la Patagonia Argentina (mi única duda es el color del iris, estos son amarronados y lo que he visto son de color rojo)

Shedd researcher Solomon David took this video of aquatic leeches at an agricultural ditch-wetland junction near the Bay of Green Bay. Have you ever seen leeches that look like this?

+Matthew Pangborn No only one. The medicinal leech. That's only in the UK though. I know we're quite lucky when it comes to nasties.
In some countries. Lke Australia. Nearly everything that moves. Wants to bite or stick you.
But when it comes to leeches. It seems to be the rainforest type ecosystems. That hold loads of the blood sucking types. Like tiger leeches. They sit on leaves waiting for any mammal to brush past.
I'm not a huge fan of them. So I'm pretty happy living in temperate old Scotland.lol
(one bloody type is enough for me:)

Want to help us tell a ribbitting story? As little as $10 to Shedd's annual fund will help us bring the story of Amphibians to life. Help us tell guests around the world about metamorphosis, conservation and why these animals matter. http://bit.ly/1OC6FXv ‪#‎Sheddphibians‬

Each spring for nesting season, male rockhopper and Magellanic penguins launch into hot pursuit for the perfect rocks to build their nests. Watch them get to work!
