sandiegozoo Dr. Bethan Morgan from the San Diego Zoo Institute for #Conservation Research and her team working in #EboNationalForest, #Congo (on our gorilla project), rescued this #baby mona #monkey after his mother was shot. He's recuperating at the Limbe Wildlife Centre, where colleagues have named him 'Ebo'. The fight to stop this continues.

sandiegozoo Our final nominee for best male #vocalist, Izu, the king of the @sdzsafaripark. #GRAMMYs Follow the @sdzsafaripark for more from Izu and his four playful #cubs.
#Lions are famous for their sonorous #roar. Males are able to roar when they are about one year old, and females can roar a few months later. Lions use their roar as a form of communication. It identifies individuals, strengthens the pride’s bond, and lets other #animals know of the pride’s domain. A lion's roar can be heard up to 3 miles away.

sandiegozoo Another nominee for best male #vocalist, Montana the New Guinea singing dog. #GRAMMYs

Unlike any other #dog species, New Guinea singing dogs have a unique structure at the back of their mouth that may help them make some of their unusual sounds. Interestingly, sonograms show the howl of a #SingingDog is similar to the #song of the humpback whale. The singing dog’s #howl sounds like a yodel, with the tones going up and down. The New Guinea singing dog is the most recent #canid species to be recorded by #science.

sandiegozoo Another nomination for best male #vocalist, Kenai the #ArcticWolf. #GRAMMYs

One of the best-known ways #wolves communicate is by #howling, a soulful song that sounds both melodious and mournful, mysterious and sad. Yet contrary to those impressions, a #wolf’s #howl is a celebration: wolves love to make #music! Wolves howl for many reasons, in #solo or chorus. They howl upon waking up from a long sleep and to rally the pack prior to a hunt. The howl inspires enthusiasm, helps synchronize pack activities, and can be a song of the feast, announcing and defending a kill. Wolves also howl after intense play and social interactions or to communicate positions or keep in touch when separated. Howling creates an acoustic barrier to warn other wolves to stay away, outlining boundaries and signaling location, pack size, and strength. No two wolves hit the same note: they immediately change pitch until discord is reached to make the pack sound larger and more formidable.

sandiegozoo Our 2nd nomination for best male #vocalist, Crikey the #LaughingKookaburra. #GRAMMYs
Known as the “bushman’s alarm clock” because it has a very loud call, a laughing #kookaburra vocalizes in its family group at dawn and dusk. The call has been used as a sound effect in jungle movies for many years, where it sounds like a group of monkeys.

sandiegozoo One of our nominations for best male vocalist. #grammys Koalas make several different #vocalizations, from snores to bellows to screams. Our researchers are trying to understand why male koalas #bellow. Is it to tell other males to stay away or to invite females to visit? The bellow sounds like a mixture of a motorcycle revving and a pig snorting.
