Pere David’s deer have been extinct in the wild since 2008, but you can see them at the Zoo’s Asian Highlands Phase 1, opening on Thursday. Are you excited for your first trek into the Asian Highlands?
We will help you begin your weekend with some cuteness overload! These black-necked swans, found in South American swamps and freshwater marshes, have four cygnets. Although the mothers can often be seen swimming with their babies on their back (see pictures 3 and 4), the male does most of the “childcare duties.” He even guards the nest so mom can head out and feed.
Today our favorite aardvark couple, Alvin and Annie, celebrated their birthdays with a party in Kingdoms of the Night and a birthday walk (which naturally turned into a birthday dig). Please join us in wishing Alvin (26) and Annie (16) a happy birthday! For more party details, visit us on Facebook @ OmahaZoo.
