We have been fortunate to have some nesting Manu o Ku at the Honolulu Zoo as of late that have resulted in several new chick hatchings! We always love when we can be a safe place for both our animal residents as well as our wild visiting friends.
 
Manu o Ku, or white terns, are a native Hawaiian seabird found throughout tropical areas in the Pacific, Southern Atlantic and Indian Oceans. In Hawaii, the only main island where terns can be found is Oahu. These terns have made urban Honolulu their home designating them as the Official Bird of the City and County of Honolulu. So be on the look out for these beautiful native birds that may be nesting right in your backyard!

Louise the hippo loves to hang out in her pool on these hot Hawaiian days.  From sleeping, to eating, and even playing she is a happy hippo when she’s spending time in her large pool.
 
Hippos in the wild will spend most of their time in the water to keep their skin cool and moist in the hot African sun, emerging once its cooler to graze on grasses. They are very graceful in the water and can hold their breath for up to 5 minutes, even while sleeping!
 
Come say Hi to Louise at your next visit to @thehonoluluzoo !

In celebration of #worldrainforestday let’s get to know a little more about one of the smallest species that call the rainforest home, the poison dart frog.

Native to the rain forests of Central and South America the poison dart frog is only about an inch in size and are most known for their bright coloration of yellows, oranges, reds, greens and blues, and poisonous nature.

The poison dart frog has a wide variety of insects it likes to consume from ants and termites, to small crickets and beetles. Some of these insects are thought to be responsible for the frogs toxicity. Touching or consuming of most poison tree frog species can lead to swelling, nausea, and paralysis.

Let’s stand tall for our favorite long-necked species the giraffe for #worldgiraffeday !

We all love these larger then life animals and it’s up to us to stand up and stand tall to protect them in the wild. These beautiful creatures are at risk in their native Africa from poaching and destruction of habitat, with native populations at a low 100,000 individuals in the wild.

By coming together and supporting local conservation efforts in Africa, like the @giraffe_conservation , we can help giraffe populations through an increase in sustainable agriculture, reforestation, monitoring of populations, conservation education, and protecting species from poaching.

To learn more about giraffes and the amazing work Giraffe Conservation Foundation is doing in the field visit www.giraffeconservation.org

Today is a very special animal birthday! Sherman our American or Caribbean flamingo is celebrating his 28th birthday or hatch day! Sherman is very special flamingo at The Honolulu Zoo since before he hatched keeper staff needed to watch over and incubate him. Each day as staff came in to monitor his egg they would talk and Sherman could hear them, similarly to parent flamingoes vocalizing to their egg to start forming a bond. Once Sherman hatched, he recognized his keepers’ voices! To this day he is very much drawn to investigating and interacting with his keepers. Happy hatch day Sherman!

We’re feeling glamorous for this Tuesday’s #zooglamourshots with Louie the great white pelican!

Great white Pelicans are natively found in southeastern Europe, South Asia, and Africa, though the majority of the pelican populations are found in Africa. With webbed feet and strong legs they are great aquatic birds. Once in flight these large long-winged birds are strong fliers.

You can find Louie at The Honolulu Zoo with our bongo antelope in our African savanna.

Watch as our scarlet macaw take flight!
 
Macaws are built to fly through the trees with a streamline body and tail shape. When they come in to land they drop their tail and feet downward and use their wings as breaks to slow their momentum before grasping to land on a tree limb.

Scarlet macaws are threatened in the wild due to logging, farming, and development of native habitat. Conservation efforts are working to protect areas of native forest for these amazing parrots.

It’s a catnap #caturday kind of day!
 
Have you ever wondered why lions are normally found sleeping during the day?! Lions are crepuscular, meaning that they are most active at twilight or before sunset, choosing to do the majority of their hunting when the weather is cooler and prey animals might be less likely to see them approaching. Without sweat glands to aid them in cooling down lions will choose to lounge and nap for upwards of 20 hours a day to conserve energy in their native African environment.

Hello, can you confirm your Zoo is open 7 days a week, 10am to 3pm?
Had fun at The Honolulu Zoo last week! We were walking around and I felt something on my head! We didn’t dare touch her and started walking to find help and she just sat there. We were worried she was injured after security took her and she didn’t try to fly away! (I think he thought we were trying to birdnap her!)

Showing some love for the animals!!
Sorry I must go calm down I'm getting heart palpitations.
I have to do somethings, please understand. He's been very thoughtful and caring for 1yrs. Because he was trying to gain my trust. In my phone everyday. Pulls his crap, but I caught on. I believe he thought I was an only child living with mom He kept asking to look for rentals and or senior homes. And have my mom give me everything, all the while working me. Finally after some time when I realized what he was after, I said I have five siblings. He stopped about senior living. Some how he used my account number and other means. I work outside late at night I put all my things in a box. Thank God I always lock the door to come onto house for something. When I went back out my box was gone. It had a ruby ring all my papers not sure but my credit card may have been in it. The bank sent me a letter which I will take a picture of and said someone who knew my account number and password for Bank atm used it right around the corner from where I lived. I've banked with them for 19yrs. They became suspicious of how and what card was used. Sent me the the letter and refunding me the money that time. I can't take and send all pictures now, but I will. This photo is taken right across from my home it was dark but to the right you can make out a body. He always uses that address 3031 my street. But it's the people who live behind I'm asking the police to come with me to the house. Their flood lights are always on, then installed security lights like from a computer.
You will not believe all the yhinhshe hasdone you me personally. I think he paying me back for his grandfather's sexual harrassment. It's not my fault. I live on federal monies, the only ones who can touch it is the IRS. Mehmet z Dede is his grandfather.
