IT'S A GIRL!
Help Us Name Our Baby Gorilla
To celebrate the month of Ape-ril, the Toronto Zoo is asking for help in naming our newest member of the Western Lowland Gorilla Troop - a female born, to mom, Ngozi, and dad, Charles on January 10, 2014. For full details on the contest, the baby gorilla and how the Toronto Zoo is helping to save and protect this critically endangered species CLICK HERE
Special Enrichment Feeding
How did Malaysian painted turtles get their name? While these turtles are normally dull in colour, in the breeding season (which is going on right now) males become very colourful!
Come out to the Indo-Malaya Pavilion every Saturday this... April at 1:30 for a special enrichment feeding with the painted turtles and see if you can tell the males from the females. Will the girls be more impressed with the boys colours or the fun way their food is presented to them?
