Adventures of Andrus and Freeman
#KeeperPerspective Emerson Children’s Zoo alpacas, Andrus and Freeman, take regular walks around the Saint Louis Zoo with their keepers. Recently, they took a stroll past resident polar bear Kali and over to the Judy and Jerry Kent Family Sea Lion Sound to view the seals and pinniped keepers during a training/feeding session.

Throwback Thursday – Spider Monkeys
#ThrowbackThrusday We put a GoPro inside of a suet basket feeder along with a whole banana for our spider monkeys, to encourage problem-solving behavior and manual dexterity with regard to foraging for food. We often put portions of their entire diet in suet feeders like this, but banana is one of their favorite foods and thus a particularly good motivator for getting some good footage of the interaction.Video: Ethan Riepl #BringTheStlZooToYou
