  UP & ABOUT: Good Monday morning everyone! We hope that you are off to a good start like Bob, our Bobcat! Make plans to visit the Zoo this week, especially for the second round of Boo At The Zoo, starting this Thursday at 5pm! #BhamBATZ .  BOBCAT FUN FACTS: Bobcats are elusive and nocturnal, so they are rarely spotted by humans. Although, they have known to be active during all hours of the day and night. Studies have consistently found Bobcats to be most active at dawn and dusk! . . #Bobcat #BhamZoo #BirminghamZoo  Odessa, Duncan & Zuzu @duncan_plus_zuzu
  Current mood...relaxing and enjoying this cool breezy Saturday! Meet our California sea lion pair, Farley & Gio, during a Red Diamond Sea Lion Show here at the Zoo on Saturdays and Sundays at 10am and 2pm. Guests to the show will learn about sea lion behavior and positive-reinforcement training, animal fun facts and the need for conserving the sea lions' ocean habitat! .  FUN FACTS: Sea lions are known for their high intelligence, playfulness and their loud, roaring bark. They have been seen porpoising, or jumping, out of the water and also surfing breaking waves. Sea lions are very fast swimmers, with the ability to reach speeds of up to 25 miles per hours for short distances. They are also able to travel quickly on land using their flippers. Unlike seals, sea lions have visible ear-flaps, while seals only have ear holes! . #CaliforniaSeaLion #BhamZoo #BirminghamZoo

  FLAMINGO HABITAT RENOVATION: We are excited to update everyone on the wonderful new things going on around the Zoo! During your visit, you will notice that our flamingo habitat doesn't have any flamingos inside 🤔. No need to worry, we are in the process of renovating the flamingo habitat! .  Our goal is to transform the existing area to improve husbandry in the future. The new habitat will also give guests a more unique and interactive experience with the flamingos during your visit. For now, the flamingos will be off habitat and living behind-the-scenes away from guest viewing. . I know we all look forward to seeing the new flamingo habitat once renovations are complete. The project will last only a few months and we will update everyone on the progress! . #Flamingo #BhamZoo #BirminghamZoo
