DENVER— A 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.

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.
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.
Memorial Day Weekend kicks off an exciting summer season at Denver Zoo including special activities, shows and demonstrations from May 24 through September 1.

Baku will remain behind the scenes in Toyota Elephant Passage while being cared for by his mother until they are comfortable enough to venture outdoors. Until then, visitors can see live, closed-circuit video of Baku on monitors inside Toyota Elephant Passage.
