  HAPPY INTERNATIONAL PALLAS' CAT DAY! . The Birmingham Zoo is home to two Pallas' cats, our female Mischa and our male Bataar. Currently, you can see Bataar at his habitat in the Predator building on your next trip to the Zoo! Our Predator team is in the process of introducing Mischa and Bataar to each other, so soon both will be on habitat together. .  FUN FACTS: The Pallas' cat is a small wildcat known for its flattened and rounded face, stocky build. Their long, dense coats make them appear super fluffy, stout and plush. Pallas' cats live throughout central Asia, from western Iran to western China. . #PallasCat #InternationalPallasCatDay #BhamZoo #BirminghamZoo  Paul G @pgprophoto

 🥚EASTER ENRICHMENT: Today some of our animals in the South America/Primate area were treated to various holiday themed enrichment activities! . ⭐ Our awesome and creative Animal Care Professionals dyed boiled eggs, made tissue paper flowers and paper mache eggs, painted festive signs, and even created Easter baskets for some of the animals. One of our Zoo Educators also created cardboard carrots that were “planted” in the squirrel monkey habitat! .  Needless to say, we had plenty of fun enrichment happenings for the holiday and we hope everyone who joined us today, enjoyed seeing the animals partaking in the festivities! .  Here our Spider monkeys are foraging for dyed boiled eggs in a giant Easter basket. . .
