sandiegozoo The chameleon’s eyes are the most distinctive among #reptiles. They have a 360-degree arc of vision and can see in two directions at once... but two can play the camouflage game. Can you spot the sneaky bug? 🤔 #EyeSpy #KarmaChameleon #chameleonsofinstagram #reptilesrock 17h

sandiegozoo We heard your Monday needs a little more meerkat. Happy meerkat pups are often born during the rainy season, when food is plentiful and mothers are well-fed enough to produce high-quality milk. #MeerkatMondayMakesEverythingBetter (: Ion Moe) 1w

sandiegozoo Long week? You know what to do... Brown #bears in interior North America are known as grizzly bears because their fur is tipped with white or tan; the word “grizzly” means “sprinkled or streaked with gray.” #TGIF #ShakeitOff #BearNecessities #photo by Helene Hoffman 2w

sandiegozoo The word #porcupine comes from the Latin porcus for pig and spina for spine—therefore, “spiny pig.” An individual can have over 30,000 quills, but contrary to popular belief, they cannot shoot their quills at adversaries. Porcupines have muscles at the base of each quill that allow them to stand up when the animal is excited or alarmed. #SpinyPigs #WhatsthePoint #QuillorbeQuilled #sandiegozoo 2w

sandiegozoo Last week, our #bigcats enjoyed some icy enrichment thanks to a generous donor. This was the first #snowday for our #lions and #jaguars, so as you can see, some enjoyed exploring their wintery terrain while others were not impressed. ️☃ #WinterIsNotComing #CatsofInstagram 3w

sandiegozoo We interrupt your feed for a little pool play with Devi. Despite numerous adaptations for life in the water, #hippos can’t swim—they can’t even float! Instead, they move around by pushing off from the bottom of the river or walking along the riverbed in a slow-motion gallop, like aquatic ballet dancers. #NotSoTinyDancer #HipHopAnonymous #JustKeepGalloping #sandiegozoo 3w
