Happy #InternationalCheetahDay! At the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute Dr. Adrienne Crosier is studying cheetah reproduction.

Cheetahs are not as genetically diverse as many other species due to a severe population decline about 10,000 years ago. To inject more genetic diversity in the cheetah population in human care, Dr. Crosier is researching IVF and if fertilized eggs from...

Red siskins are famous for their brilliant red plumage as adults, but when they hatch, chicks have gray feathers. #WeSaveSpecies
#BeiBei has been very active today. He spent time playing with his boomer ball this morning and even had a short play session with Mei Xiang. The keepers were able to weigh him and he's 95 pounds. His recovery continues to go well.

Ashton Ball, one of our keepers at the Small Mammal House, is the new Species Survival Plan coordinator for the Prevost’s squirrel. Many animals in zoos are bred according to recommendations from Species Survival Plans (SSP). The SSPs make those recommendations based on genetics and individual animals’ temperaments. #WeSaveSpecies
#BeiBei’s recovery continues to go well, one week after his surgery. He is eating soft foods, but has progressed to eating larger amounts of biscuits, sweet potatoes and apples. He is also starting to become more active. Yesterday, keepers gave him a puzzle feeder, which is a familiar enrichment item that he normally has access to. They put some biscuits in the feeder, and he proceeded to...

He has been very responsive to keepers and comes directly to the den when they call him to take his medications. Mei Xiang is also adjusting to her new...
