Happy #TongueOutTuesday! Did you know that a Masai giraffe's tongue can grow up to 18-20 inches long? They use these long tongues to grab leaves from trees.

Did you know the Greenville Zoo is participating in an important research study involving orangutan tooth emergence? The primary objective of the study is to provide a comprehensive updated tooth emergence chart for both Sumatran and Bornean orangutans. The need is for more consistent and specific age assignment to better serve husbandry and rehabilitation of orphans and to help build stronger cases for enforcement of existing laws that protect these endangered species in range countries. You can visit the orangutan SSP website at http://www.orangutanssp.org/research.html to learn more about this important project.

We are proud to say that we were recently recognized by @conservewildcats as a Platinum Supporter for our $16,437 contribution to their Amur leopard conservation efforts. This contribution originated from our Amur leopard initiative on the “Quarters for Conservation” kiosk. This sizeable donation was made possible by our wonderful guests’ enthusiasm for supporting Amur leopards in the wild. We truly appreciate our zoo guests’ engagement in conservation initiatives such as these to make the world a better place. This donation placed the Greenville Zoo as #2 in their top 10 zoos that contributed in 2018. We are fortunate to have Amur leopards at the zoo as ambassadors for their species as they help educate, inspire and deliver valuable conservation messages.
