The day is coming to an end, and we’re doing final checks for the day. Everybody is turning in for the night and it’s about time for me to head home. I hope you enjoyed spending the day with me and all of the animals at the Zoo that I get the privilege of caring for. As always, thank you for your generosity and support for Zoo Atlanta! See you next time! #TakeoverTuesday – Danica Wolfe,...

While we’re on the subject of funny goats, here is Hobbes sporting his “lipstick” after helping devour a donated Christmas tree. Similar to our pumpkin donations in the fall (Thanks, Home Depot!), surrounding businesses will often donate leftover and unused trees to the animals. Not all of the animals eat them, but it is definitely a fun treat! Depending on the size of the tree, we usually...

If you were to go through my phone, based off my pictures you would probably think I spend at least 90% of my life with goats. That’s not entirely inaccurate, and I’m absolutely ok with that. Goats are the best! It’s hard as Outback Keepers not to be smiling or laughing when you’re surrounded by such comical animals. I am lucky if I make it through a whole work day without breaking into a...

Nessie decided that continuing her nap was more important than munching on the fresh hay that everyone else was enjoying. Nessie is the alpha of our herd, so she gets away with doing pretty much whatever she wants. The goats are definitely not the tidiest eaters, so Nessie enjoyed a comfy hay blanket for the duration of her snooze courtesy of Bogart and Calvin. I found her like this sleeping...

Kangaroo training was one of my biggest focuses when I was a primary keeper in Outback Station, and I’m really grateful to be able to continue that training in my new role as a Swing Keeper. Nani is the most eager to train individual in our mob, and is much more food motivated than Rory, Adeline and Roland. After I got done with our training session, I scattered some sweet potatoes around...

When I got down to the barn, one of the keepers asked if I could put a bed down for the babydoll Southdown sheep to lay on. We keep spare hay that the goats and sheep don’t eat in large bags, and use them for bedding so that we can limit waste. I grabbed what I thought was a bag of hay and poured it out for the sheep to nap on. Well, turns out it was actually a bag of sheep’s wool from the...

Before I head down to the Outback Station barn, I want to share with all of you how you can help protect and safeguard the survival of Thor and Loki’s counterparts in the wild. Thor and Loki, like all of the species that live on Trader’s Alley here at the Zoo, are at risk due to unsustainable or illegal practices. Tanuki’s biggest threat is the use of their fur to make clothing. Sometimes,...

Alright, now that you know how to tell Thor and Loki apart, it’s time to put your skills to the test! Who is who in this picture? Ok, before you pick your choice, I should probably tell you that this was a bit of a trick question. The two pictures you see here are actually the same animal. Crazy, right? These are two pictures of Loki that I have taken in the past few months. The one on the...

One of the most common questions I get from guests when chatting with them about the tanuki is, “How do you tell them apart?” Well, when I first started, I will admit that it was near impossible. If you’re visiting the Zoo and want to get a quick identification on the two of them, you just need to look at their noses. Thor (left) has a broader nose that is almost entirely covered by dark fur....

Thor and Loki have both finished their meals, and I’ve recorded a weight for Thor, so now it is time to reunite them in their habitat. These two get very playful in the winter! They are part of the canine family, so they exhibit a lot of the same play behaviors you might see in a domesticated dog. They particularly enjoy leaf piles, so I hid some treats underneath one. While Loki was...

Ok everybody, make sure your sound is on! This is without a doubt my favorite picture or video I’ve captured since I started at Zoo Atlanta. I’m so excited to share it with you! This is Thor demonstrating a vocalization called a bugle. Thor and Loki use this vocalization to communicate with each other or locate one another in the habitat. We don’t hear it very often, so I was lucky to be able...

While Loki is enjoying his breakfast, I take the opportunity to weigh Thor. Thor and Loki are both trained to voluntarily step on a scale, let us take the reading, and then enjoy the rewards that come after. All of the training at the Zoo is positive reinforcement-based, and the animals do not have to participate if they don’t want to. Even if Thor decided he didn’t want to get on the scale...

Today, I need to get a current weight on the tanuki, so I’ve separated them for their meal. Tanuki are omnivores, meaning they eat both plants and animals. This time of year, Thor and Loki are experiencing the effects of torpor. Tanuki are native to Japan, where they would experience extreme cold snaps and weather change. Here at the Zoo, the effects are not as dramatic, but we do see some...

After I put out the enrichment, I go around the front to see what the rest of the colony is up to. Look at those teeth! Naked mole-rats have large top and bottom teeth that are perfect for helping them dig tunnels. Their lips also close just behind their teeth to prevent soil from entering their mouths while digging. #TakeoverTuesday – Danica Wolfe, Mammals Swing Keeper

Native to the Horn of Africa (Eritrea, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya, and Somalia), naked mole rats are among the only eusocial mammals in the world (the others are the Damaraland mole-rat and Mechow’s mole-rat). That means they have a social structure similar to bees. They also lack pain sensitivity in their skin and have low metabolic and respiratory rates that make them well adapted for their...

Morning routine is all done, and I’m going to be spending the rest of my day down at Outback Station. On my way, I stopped by to check in on Andazi and see what she’s up to. Looks like she has been enjoying some mud! Mud wallowing is a natural behavior for rhinos that assists in thermoregulation and acts as a natural sunscreen. We often get asked why our mud wallowing animals like the...

And because I know his loyal fan base is often asking for updates, I had to include a picture of everybody’s favorite Reeves’ muntjac, Marvin! #TakeoverTuesday – Danica Wolfe, Mammals Swing Keeper

I wouldn’t feel that my Takeover was complete without a shout-out to our ostriches, Purple and Orange. Zookeepers take their jobs very seriously, but I constantly find myself struggling not to laugh at the shenanigans these two are always up to. When keepers are up on the berm to hang giraffe enrichment or put food out, they are always the first to see us and always the ones to follow us. The...

Now here’s something you don’t see in a Hoofstock barn every day! Kori bustards! These two are Snake and Tuza’s offspring from this past year. As a Swing Keeper, my favorite part of my job is working with a wide variety of animals. The only other birds under the care of the Mammal Department are the ostriches, so taking care of the kori bustards is a whole new set of learning opportunities for...

Speaking of winter, I am sure many of you are missing spring and summer. As a Washington state native, cold weather feels like home to me. Still, while looking at this picture of Abu I took a few months ago, I can’t help but miss the summer. Here, Abu is using his long neck and prehensile tongue to grab some tasty leaves. #TakeoverTuesday – Danica Wolfe, Mammals Swing Keeper
