#DYK the Minnesota Zoo is the home of the first & only rearing & breeding program for the #endangered Dakota skipper butterfly?! Last year the #MNZoo had the first-ever reintroduction of these little butterflies & we're excited to do it again this summer. Special thanks to Conservation Biologist Erik for sharing this great photo of one of our Dakota Skippers that was released last summer. - - #End#EndangeredSpeciesDay #40YearsofAmazing #savewildlife #SavingSpecies #butterfly #FlashbackFriday #EndangeredSpecies

The Minnesota Zoo is celebrating #40YearsofAmazing conservation wins! #DYK trumpeter swans were once declared extinct in the state of #Minnesota? With help from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) the #MNZoo was able to reintroduce swans back into the state. It's estimated that 17,000 trumpeter swans now call MN home. #EndangeredSpeciesDay #savewildlife #savingspecies #FlashbackFriday #OnlyinMN

It's finally starting to feel like summer! Time to take a cue from our musk ox and shed our winter coats. #DYK Musk Oxen roamed the earth at the same time as the mammoth and woolly rhinoceros? Thanks to Zookeeper Maggie for sharing this video. - #summerishere #nomorecoats #muskox #muskoxen #dayattheMNZoo #mnzoo #40YearsofAmazing #funfact

That feeling when you have an itch in those hard-to-reach places… #DYK that an armadillo's hard shell is made of keratin? That’s the same material as our fingernails! Special thanks to Zoomobile’s Trinity for sharing the video. #MNZoomobile #armadillo #threebandedarmadillo #dayattheMNZoo #mnzoo

Wherever bison moms are the calves is close behind. Bison calves are sometimes called "red dogs" for the red fur they're born with. See if you can spot the two new additions along the Northern Trail. 📷: Zoo Photographer, Jeremiah Schuster - - #MothersDay #Momsrule #savewildlife #bison #dayattheMNZoo #babyanimals
