The marvelous "M" names continue with Merida #Monday! 🐐⁠
⁠
Merida is a Nigerian Dwarf Goat who resides in the barnyard here at the Zoo. Her rusty red fur and sassy demeanor set her apart from the other goats in her group! 🏠️⁠ Even if Merida has an attitude, she is an integral part of our barnyard here at the zoo! 🧩 While some goats might seem standoffish, they actually value each other as companions, and feel much happier when kept in groups! 🫂⁠
Sensei and Hutan are the bonded pair of Siamangs that call ZooTampa home. 💍 Not shown here is their daughter, Kazuki, who is often up to mischief in the Siamang habitat! 🌳⁠
⁠
Siamangs are an endangered member of a group of primates called "gibbons" or "lesser apes" who are ✨️not✨️ a type of monkey! 🐒⁠
Monkeys and apes are often mistaken for one another, but the easiest way to distinguish these primates is the presence (or lack) of a tail: monkeys have tails, while apes do not! 🦧 🦍⁠
My oh my Mia! ⁠💕⁠
⁠
Mia is a Yellow-Footed Rock Wallaby that hops around in the Australia section of ZooTampa. 🇦🇺 You can easily identify Mia by her stylish, blue, ear tag and her short snout. 🦘While they look tiny, wallabies can actually jump quite far! Did you know they can jump up to six feet in the air? 😲 That's almost twice their height! ⬆️
It's national Stick Your Tongue Out Day! 👅⁠
⁠
Who better to celebrate with than one of our favorite long-tongued residents? 🤔 Zach the Okapi has a prehensile tongue that can reach up to eighteen inches long! 📏 His tongue can actually grab at food as well as our hands can! 🤯 Not only does this unique adaptation allow him to efficiently find food, but it also makes him the perfect candidate for those funny holidays like today. 🌿
Buluu (up front) and Emerald are our two Blue Duikers that stay tucked away in Africa's Hornbill Aviary! 🪶🌍️⁠
⁠
These mini antelope are only between 13-16 inches tall, so be sure to check close to the ground for the chance to see them! 🤏They're particularly good at hiding sometimes... did you know that the word "Duiker" is actually Dutch for "Diver"? ⬇️ These little guys are so good at diving into bushes to hide from predators, they were named after it! 🫢
Last week, you met Myrtle, the Babirusa, but this week, we want to celebrate Melati Monday with a beautiful Binturong! 🫶⁠
⁠
Melati is a female Binturong here at ZooTampa. She can be found curled up in her habitat's foliage or cooling down in the shaded rocky spots. 🪴 In any case, you will probably smell her before you see her! 🍿
You know, sometimes you just need to knock over the whole hay tub to get the best hay-crunching experience. 🌾 This is especially true when you're a large tortoise like our friend, Winston! 🐢⁠
⁠
Winston is a Galapagos tortoise, the largest species of tortoise in the world! Winston here weighs around 450lbs, but other tortoises like him can reach over 500lbs! ⚖️
