sandiegozoo A lynx’s keen vision earns this #cat legendary status in the myths of many cultures. In Greek, Norse, and North American myths, the #lynx sees what others can’t, and it’s role is revealing hidden truths. #catsofinstagram #caturday 1w

sandiegozoo Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land. — Aldo Leopold
Want to help save #gorillas? Recycle your old cell phones and other electronic devices. The average cell phone lasts around 18 months, which means about 130 million phones will be ditched each year. Each one contains a wafer of coltan, a mineral mined from #gorilla habitat in the #Congo. But when electronics are #recycled responsibly, this mineral can be saved and reused, thus reducing the need for more mining. Get your green on this #EarthDay and save wildlife.

sandiegozoo Organs such as the heart, liver, and spleen are placed differently in #sloths than in other mammals to accommodate their upside-down lifestyle. Their #hair has also adapted to living wrong-side-up: it parts in the middle of the belly and grows upward toward the back. The hair on a sloth’s face points upward, too, which allows water to run off during rainstorms. #wronghairdontcare #funfacts #sandiegozoo #instasloth 3w

sandiegozoo You might think that a cheetah’s prey doesn’t stand a chance, but cheetahs don’t always catch the meals they’re chasing. In fact, #cheetahs catch their prey in only half of the hunting attempts they make. #caturday #catsofinstagram #photo by Ion Moe 3w

sandiegozoo Our Avian Propagation Center is caring for a brown #kiwi #chick for the first time in more than a decade. This #endangered species is an unusual bird: it doesn’t fly, the parents don’t feed their chicks, and the egg is 4x the expected size for a bird of the kiwi’s proportions. #EndExtinction #instacute #BirdsofInstagram #sandiegozoo 3w

sandiegozoo In 2013, a new #takin joined our herd. Takins, like giant pandas, are considered national treasures in #China. The little guy was named Linshuh, which means "silver snake" in Mandarin. He was named for the year of the snake and his extra-silvery coat of fur. #tbt #instacute #throwback 4w

sandiegozoo Polar #bears have built-in socks. Stiff fur on the sole of each foot keeps the #polarbear from slipping on ice and also muffles the sound of the bear’s approach when sneaking up on a meal. #EndExtinction #cool #underwater #photo by Helene Hoffman 4w
