The Chinese name for red pandas is "hun-ho," meaning "fire fox," but the rain can’t extinguish Clark’s cute looks. 🔥🦊 Pro tip: Grab your umbrella! Rainy days are a good time to visit because the weather elicits unique behavior and minimal crowds. #firefox#redpanda#rainydays#sandiego#sandiegozoo 📷: Christopher Chain

Since we're talkin' bout tortoises today... let's meander over to our elderly residents. On land, the Galápagos tortoise runs away, albeit slowly, with title of longevity king. Being a #reptile may give these gentle giants a head start, but their 100-plus-year average lifespan is still a “shell” of a claim to fame. #ageisjustanumber#tortoisesofinstagram#shellebrate#sandiegozoo

Sometimes saving species requires a helping hand. Ex situ breeding programs are often necessary to help boost population numbers with the hopes of one day reintroducing a species to its native home. In today's story, we shellebrated our breeding program for the critically endangered Burmese star tortoise. Do you have any questions about the breeding process? #endextinction#astarishatched#tinytortoise#endangeredspecies#sandiegozoo#reptilehouse

Our researchers caught rare black leopards on camera in Laikipia County, Kenya. Sometimes called black panthers, the melanistic leopards were filmed in Lorok, Laikipia County, Kenya on remote cameras that were set up as part of a large-scale study aimed at understanding the population dynamics of leopards in Mpala and Loisaba Conservancy.
