It’s National Skunk Day! 🦨
Celebrate with Jules, the striped skunk. Jules is enjoying a diet fit for an omnivore! A heathy mix of meat, vegetables, and more helps us ensure that Jules is feeling his best. 🥗
We hope you are starting your Tuesday with the same amount of zen as Titus, the Komodo Dragon. 😌⁠
Titus has been relaxing in the shaded areas of his habitats to avoid the Florida heat, which we can't say we blame him! Be sure to take a close look, sometimes Titus and Aanjay like to relax above ground level in their dragon loft! 🦎
Look at those grippers! 🫵⁠
Heathcliff and his other koala friends have long, sharp claws and grippy finger tips that allow them to climb trees with ease. 🌳
⁠Today is World Oceans Day! Please help protect our oceans and all the creatures that call it home! 🌊⁠
Florida's manatees can be found in the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf, and Florida's other various rivers and springs. Be sure to keep our beaches and oceans clean during your next summer outing and keep searching for ways to protect our waterways! 🏖️⁠

These flamingos are looking pretty in pink! 🦩⁠
Our Caribbean flamingos love wading in the shallow water where they can socialize and snack throughout the day! 🏖️ These particular flamingos rest their heads on their backs to relax during a hot summer afternoon. ⁠
Catch them chilling out in ZooTampa's Florida Wilds realm. ☀️⁠
Who has seen Hershel the Crested Wood Partridge? 🙋‍♀️
Hershel is a gregarious bird who actively investigates his visitors. 🪶
Say “hi!” the next time you are in ZooTampa’s Australia!
Have you ever visited the zoo to see Albert, the Malayan Tapir, taking one of his famous naps? 😴⁠
While Munah and Ubi are behind the scenes, Albert has had a lot of time to relax in his habitat during the day. ☀️ As you may have noticed, Albert favors the front corner of his habitat for his daily nap. Malayan Tapirs prefer to sleep through the middle of the day and will wake up at dawn and dusk to forage! 🌅⁠
Can you remember what animal we mentioned earlier this week that follows a similar schedule? 🤔
Happy #TongueOutTuesday 👅 from Zsa Zsa, the Pygmy Hippo. If you look closely, you may see what Zsa Zsa is snacking on! 🦛⁠
Here at the Zoo, the Pygmy hippos particularly enjoy the carrots and sweet potato found in their diet.🥕⁠
Scootch over, our Ring-Tailed Lemurs are here! ⁠🎉⁠
Scootch and Pinch are two of the ring-tailed lemurs that call ZooTampa home. Lemurs often use their tails to play and communicate with each other. 👋 Their ringed tails can be used to keep social groups together, warn against predators, and more! ⁠🔊⁠
