Hang in there, it’s Friday…AND #InternationalSlothDay! Sloths can be found in Central & South America. The Linnie two-toed sloth, on the Tropics Trail, sleep, eat, mate & even give birth hanging upside down in the trees.

Happy #TigerTuesday! Vera is just over 5 months old, and she's getting bigger by the day! She currently weighs in at 64 pounds. That's nearly as much as 5 year old Tamara, our Amur Leopard, who weighs 66 pounds! Swipe left for a picture of Tamara. (📷of Sundari & Vera: Zoo Guest, Lauren Borer) #dayatthemnzoo #caturdayeveryday

We’re sad to announce that the beloved snow monkey, Nikko, has passed away. Earlier this fall we celebrated his 34th birthday. Nikko was the oldest snow monkey in North America. Nikko’s age is a true testament to the amazing care we provide our animals here at the Minnesota Zoo. Nikko was a very special animal and it has been a tough few days for our staff.

Like beavers, a porcupine’s front teeth are always growing. The teeth need to be worn down by gnawing on wood.
