FROM THE BLOG: "Equally exhilarating is what we have to offer this spring and summer right here in St. Louis at the Insectarium, which, since its opening in 2000, has continued to change and grow. We only have a small group of keepers tending to the needs of dozens of species and tens of thousands of ants, beetles, spiders and other creepy crawlers. But we continually refresh our exhibits."

Woody is 7 years old, and she’s one of our friendliest rockhopper penguins. She’s looking nice and fluffy while she molts! During a molt, our penguins will shed all of their old feathers and grow in new ones all at once. This process only takes a couple of weeks, but all the fallen feathers leave a lot of extra work for us. Good thing she is so cute, huh?! Thank you for following us today and...

We currently have three king penguin chicks: Elliot (5 months), Ethel (5 months) and Arthur (4 months). They are living off exhibit to get comfortable with hand feeding from keeper staff. These guys take keeper work very seriously and supervise us to make sure their fish is made just right! These little ones will move down to the exhibit once they’ve grown in their adult feathers, so keep an...

Here at Penguin & Puffin Coast, we want to offer our birds a dynamic, stimulating environment. Enrichment is a tool that all our keepers use to keep the animals engaged in their habitats. An example of enrichment is giving our Magellanic penguins the opportunity to walk around and explore a behind-the-scenes hallway. This gives them some great exercise, and it provides them with a new area to...

Penguins hop above the surface of the water, just like dolphins and porpoises do. This behavior is aptly called “porpoising.” In the wild, penguins do this to get a quick breath while migrating. For our Humboldt penguins, it’s an adorable way to get some exercise! #WorldPenguinDay #keepertakeover

Mahameli, our 3-1/2-month-old okapi calf, made her outdoor debut this week at Red Rocks with her mom, Manala. The okapi, or “forest giraffe,” is native to the dense rainforests of the Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa. Very little is known of its lifestyle in the wild, where its numbers are undetermined. The Saint Louis Zoo is a participant in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums'...

Recently, one of our visitors shared this great picture of her son and Western lowland gorilla Joe. “This was the highlight of my son's visit. He got out his book and pretended to read. The gorilla then found a piece of cardboard to mimic my son!” Thank you Megan Ernst for sharing!
