It may have just been International Sun Bear Day, but that's bear-ly enough time to appreciate Kacey, the Sun Bear! ☀️⁠
🐻 Bear Awareness Week continues with Kacey, and it's hard to NOT be aware of him. Kacey has been a fan favorite since his arrival at the zoo few years ago with his intriguing look and demeanor! 💕⁠
When was the last time you visited Kacey in ZooTampa's Asia loop?
We couldn't possibly find a better picture to express this week's #MondayMood with Wawa, the Hamadryas Baboon. 🙊⁠
Scared to get the week started? Channel your inner baboon and start this week, teeth bared and ready to go! 😤💪🏽
You know your Sunday is off to a bear-y good start when it's the beginning of Bear Awareness Week!⁠ 🐻⁠
Campbell is an American Black Bear who you may already be aware of. 👀 She is the shier of the two Black Bears in ZooTampa's Florida Wilds with a preference for relaxing behind the scenes. 😴
Don't bolt away! It's Endangered Species Day! 🌎️⁠
Florida is home to a plethora of endangered animals and plant life, including red wolves like Mulberry. 🐺⁠
The red wolf is a critically endangered species with only 18-20 individuals in the wild and over 250 in captive care. 🌿 Luckily, AZA institutions like ZooTampa actively participate in conserving this species in population numbers and in raising awareness! 🔊⁠
How can you help conserve this incredibly rare and important animal? ⬇️⁠
👀 Support AZA Saving Animals From Extinction (SAFE) ⁠
🚗 Drive the speed limit and drive with awareness to reduce wildlife loss to car strikes⁠
📞 Report suspected Red Wolf sightings or injured wolves to the U.S. Fish and wildlife service at 1-855-4-WOLVES ⁠
It’s International Sun Bear Day! Who better to celebrate with than Kacey, the Sun Bear? 🐻 
Kacey isn’t one to turn down a challenge, especially when food is involved. 🥬 Enrichment, like the one you see here, is an essential part of Kacey’s care that allows him to show off his excellent problem solving skills and other bear behaviors! 💭
Happy Sun Bear day to the bear-y best guy we know, Kacey! 🐻☀️
It's #TongueoutTuesday from Ravioli, the hungry Gopher Tortoise! 👅⁠
🐢 Ravioli is an essential part of the ambassador animal team here at the zoo. As a gopher tortoise, Ravioli can help teach about the importance of this keystone species right here in Florida! 🙊⁠
A keystone species is an organism that helps hold the ecosystem together. In Florida, gopher tortoises share their burrow with over 350 other species! 🐍🦊
We welcome this week's #MondayMood with a pair of Red River Hog butts... because how else are you going to welcome the week? 🍑⁠
Amy and Maverick are the resident Red River Hogs at ZooTampa, found nestled in the corner of Africa near the Pygmy Hippos. 🐗 These intelligent African pigs know that wallowing in the shade is one of the best ways to beat the heat, both in Florida and Africa! 🌍️⁠
Melati is stopping by for World Binturong Day! 👀⁠
In honor of this special day, we wanted to clear up a common confusion about these amazing animals! 🫶⁠
🐻 Binturongs are commonly called bearcats, but they aren't closely related to bears or cats at all! 🐈‍⬛ In fact, Binturongs are animals that belong to the family Viverridae, which contains other small omnivores like civets and genets. ⁠
The more you know! 💫
