Although the Zoo may be closed to the public, we want to #BringTheStlZooToYou! We have asked our animal care team to share some photos and videos of our animals over the coming weeks. Please keep in mind we will be operating under unusual circumstances and limited staff. Our first priority is the care and well-being of our animals, but when we can, we will be happy to add something fun and positive to your newsfeed!
Pretty in Pink
“On Wednesdays we wear pink!” It’s that time of year again – our Caribbean flamingos have made their way back to their summer home at the North Lake. The flamingos were carried by hand from their winter home at the 1904 Flight Cage. #BringTheStlZooToYou

We are proud to be part of this list of zoos, aquariums, museums and other cultural institutions trying to brighten up your day one social post at a time!
Our Amur leopard, Tosya, is working on his napping skills during this Zoo closure. Did you know there are estimated to be less than one hundred Amur leopard individuals in the wild? Tosya is a great ambassador for his species here at the Zoo and he will be celebrating his sweet 16 soon. #BringTheStlZooToYou
A Trumpet Welcome
#KeeperPerspective This is what it looks like when you are greeted by trumpeter swans in the morning! Charlie and Marilyn have great personalities and love to converse with our bird keepers. Here they are greeting KC as she sets out their breakfast. #BringTheStlZooToYou

#Keeper Perspective: The Children’s Zoo’s naked mole rats are enjoying their afternoon nap after a meal of bananas, apples, cooked sweet potatoes, popcorn and more from their keepers! #BringTheStlZooToYou
Sea Lion Sports Stars
Need a sports fix? From little league to the Olympics, sports may be on hold, but our sea lions are still working on their skills! #BringTheStlZooToYou
Ajabu and Mud
We now take you to the behind-the-scenes habitat of our male black rhino, Ajabu. Wallowing and splashing in the mud is one way that rhinos keep their skin healthy. Rainy days are perfect for promoting this natural behavior! #BringTheStlZooToYou
