My favorite animal: I’m sure a lot of you already know if you follow my personal account @mauravarisco, but my absolute favorite animal is a red panda As I mentioned in a previous post I’ve gotten to hand feed two of them before at oglebay zoo. I am so passionate about saving and preserving red pandas. I liked them before it was cool! Haha. So why red pandas? I can answer this by simply stating that they fascinate me. They’re smaller creatures who keep to themselves and don’t really fit in to other animal groups. They’re independent and love to explore. They have tons of energy at some times and other times they just want to sleep. They can be vicious or gentle depending on their mood. Red pandas simply put are just beautiful animals. If I were part of the animal kingdom I would definitely be a red panda. #spiritanimal#redpandas#animalconservation#clevelandmetroparkszoo#ohio#photography#asianhighlands#personality#zoossavingspecies#futureforwildlife
This morning’s coffee treat: honey from commmunity beekeeping cooperatives around Kibale National Park in Uganda. Elephant-fence beehives - including those supported by @clevemetroparks Zoo & @clevezoosociety - produce delicious honey while discouraging elephants from trespassing in local farmers’ fields. And this is YUMMY !!! #winwinwin#futureforwildlife

Just as Lulu is starting to imitate mom, she's also learning how to take a proper mud bath! Not only is rolling in the mud fun - it's a natural behavior with a purpose. #Rhinos value a coating of mud to help cool their bodies & protect against biting insects #FutureForWildlife

The animals were not having it today. I’m convinced they were on strike. Nonetheless, the zoo remains my happy place. But I did really miss LuLu #futureforwildlife
We recently welcomed 4 trumpeter #swan cygnets, who are offspring of our swans that live in Waterfowl Lake. These births are important as they will be part of our longstanding reintroduction program to raise trumpeter swans and then release them in the wild. #FutureForWildlife
