sandiegozoo Meet charlie (nicknamed axle), a 4-month-old amur leopard who was hand-raised at another facility and has joined us to be raised near other leopards. he can be seen with the other asian leopards near panda trek, but isn't always out and about. #caturday #thatfacetho (๐Ÿ“ท: deric wagner)

Oh boy... we're thrilled to announce funani's 3-week-old #hippo calf is a daring & adventurous male! mom & son will be on exhibit tue, thurs, & weekends, which is subject to change because the hippos are ultimately in charge. see more in the link in our bio. #boymeetsworld #genderreveal #babyhippo #hippohippohooray

sandiegozoo All cat eyes on mystique, our new melanistic (black) amur leopard. melanism (the opposite of albinism) is a rare, naturally occurring adaptation that causes the skin to darken through the development of melanin. at 3-years-old, mystique is a bit shy, but loves to explore her habitat and is most active around sunset.  #caturday #notapanther #bigcats #sandiegozoo (photo: debbie beals)

11 giraffes are killed every single day. without your help, certain species of giraffes could be completely extinct in 4 years. will you help us save them? click the link in our bio. #turnthingsaround #endextinction #savethegiraffes #giraffe #giraffes #stopkillinganimals #endangered #endangeredspecies #sandiegozoo #wildlifeconservancy #sandiegozooglobal #wildanimals

Today was otis' first day back on exhibit since the hippo calf's birth. for now, the hippos on exhibit will rotate with either otis or funani & the calf. we don't have a set schedule yet, but will keep you posted. #hippos #happyasahippo #sandiegozoo #slowmotion

These baby rock hyraxes are still learning how to interact with their habitat (and each other ๐Ÿ˜‰). #siblingrivalry #sdzooafricarocks #rockhyrax #babyanimals #sandiegozoo

Newborn hippos are only able to hold their breath for about 40 seconds at a time, so our little calf spends a lot of time next to mom in the shallow end of the pool. #hiptoberound #babyhippo #happyhippos

sandiegozoo Funani's hippo calf is just 4 days old and doing well. according to keepers, the calf is already very adventurous and tries to wriggle away from mom to explore, but for now they're still joined at the hip-po.๐Ÿ˜„ #hippohippohooray #happyhippo #babyhippo #sandiegozoo

It's #worldrhinoday, but rhinos are vanishing at record speeds and more are killed every day. help us turn things around before it's too late--donate through the link in our bio. thanks for joining the fight to #endextinction.

Even though they share their habitat with giant pandas ๐Ÿผ, red pandas need our help. #theoriginalpanda is #endangered due to habitat loss, hunting, & the pet trade and some estimate there are fewer than 2,500 left in the wild. in honor of #internationalredpandaday, please help us spread the word about this fluffy, red #firefox . #irpd2017 #pandamonium

sandiegozoo ๐Ÿ‘‹ it's #fossafriday! many myths surround madagascar's top predator, but one is the belief that their scent kills poultry. that's unlikely, but fossas do use scent to communicate and keep track of each other. #mythunderstood #fossapups #sdzooafricarocks (๐Ÿ“ท: craig chaddock)
