They are all doing great and visitors can see them now daily from 10:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

Summer Programs Also Wrap Up Sept. 1 Again

 

It’s going to be a very cloudy Labor Day weekend at Denver Zoo. In celebration of the end of summer, the Zoo’s three, immensely popular clouded leopard cubs; Pi, Rhu and Saya, will be out for most of the day, Saturday through Monday, with plenty of enrichment to play with inside their yard in Toyota Elephant Passage. For many, this might be the last chance to see the cubs as all three will leave for other zoos by around October 1. This is also the last weekend to enjoy the Zoo’s exciting summer shows so guests are encouraged to come and visit one last time for the season.

Anyone having direct contact with bats should contact their medical provider for advice

DENVERA wild bat, not part of Denver Zoo’s collection, found at the zoo’s primate exhibit Aug. 2, has tested positive for rabies. A zoo staff member safely captured the oddly behaving bat and took it to the zoo’s veterinary hospital. The sick bat was humanely euthanized and sent to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for rabies testing.

Calf Ventures into Outdoor Yards of Toyota Elephant Passage

 

Denver Zoo’s new baby tapir Baku (BAH-koo) has begun venturing into his outdoor space at Toyota Elephant Passage. The endangered month-old calf can be seen with his mother usually in the mornings, weather permitting. Although the youngster kept close to mom on his first day out June 5, he did venture into the water for a quick swim on this beautiful summer day.

Pups may be visible as mother carries them from den to den

 

Denver Zoo is celebrating the birth of three maned wolf pups, which were born on May 1. The unnamed triplets, made up of two males and one female, were born to mother, Adrianna, and father, Inigo, and are the first of their species to be born at the Zoo since 2009. All three pups were just given a clean bill of health by Denver Zoo doctors. Though the pups are not yet old enough to explore the outside world on their own yet, Zoo visitors might catch glimpses of them as their protective mother totes them from den to den inside the Wolf Pack Woods exhibit.
