I like striped butts and i cannot lie. you other species can’t deny. when a horse walks in with a zebra-looking waist and a long tongue in your face you get... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

this hipster horse is an okapi, the only living relative of the giraffe. they’re extremely elusive and found in only one place in the world: the ituri forest in central africa. if you want to help these endangered forest giraffes, recycle your cell phone and check out our ig live with @sdzsafaripark to learn more. #hipsterhorse #everythingsgonnabeokapi #worldokapiday #sandiegozoo

This #flashbackfriday we're digging into our archive to when #cloudedleopard cubs, riki-san and haui-san, "terrorized" the nursery in 2012. fun facts: 1) the canine teeth of the clouded leopard are the longest, relative to body size, of any feline. 2) male clouded leopards can be more than twice the size of females. this is the largest gender size difference in the cat family. #fridayfeline #catstagram #sandiegozoo #endextinction

And now for a spotlight on our beloved black-and-white beauty, bai yun. 🐼 panda females are only fertile once a year, for 2-3 days! this slow reproduction rate makes it hard for the species to bounce back on its own. but we've been working with partners in china for 30 years on a successful breeding program. #pandapandapanda #wcw #bamboobear #sandiegozoo #endextinction ⠀⠀⠀ 📷: mollie rivera

Why so moody? be-claws it's monday. #moodymonday its small size, 4-inch-long claws, and large paws with hairless soles help the bornean sun bear move about with ease high up in trees. those claws also come in handy in a fight. 📷: mike wilson #bearnecessities #sandiegozoo
