I think this is necessary to post. I see a lot of people “saving” bunnies.

“*Bunnies are one of the most frequently “kidnapped” mammal species.
*Mothers dig a very shallow nest in the ground that is easily uncovered when mowing or raking the yard. If you find a rabbit nest-leave it alone!!
*Mother rabbits only return to the nest two or three times a day, usually before dawn and right after dusk. 
*To determine if they are orphaned, either place a string across the nest in a tic-tac-toe shape or circle the nest with flour. Check the nest the next day. If the string or flour is disturbed, the mother has returned. If not, take the bunnies to a rehabilitator.
* A bunny that is bright eyed and 4-5 inches long is fully independent and does NOT need to be rescued!
*If you find a bunny that does need to be rescued, put it in a dark, quiet location. Bunnies are a prey species and while they may look calm, they are actually very, very scared!”

Never knew this, keeping this for reference

As a student of Veterinary Medicine I can completely confirm this! Do NOT take them out of their nest unless you’re 100% sure that the mother did not come back for them after at least one day!

I know this is important, but my brain is just like BUNNIES!!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Chocolates and roses are nice, but if you truly love me, get me a huge heart shaped cluster of Indiana Bats (Myotis sodalis)!

Detroit Zoo introduces new warthog piglets to public
2:09 PM, May 22, 2014

ROYAL OAK, Mich. (WXYZ) - The Detroit Zoo introduced three of five new warthog piglets into the exhibit Thursday.

Mother Lilith birthed five baby warthogs on April 14. The three introduced are female Lucy and males Carter and Sam.

The other two piglets, females Diane and Vera, are being cared for by staff members until they gain more weight to join the family.

The two smallest piglets are gaining weight quickly and will join their family soon, according to Detroit Zoological Society Curator of Mammals Elizabeth Arbaugh.

The quintuplets mark the second warthog birth occurring at the Detroit Zoo in two years.

The Association of Zoos and Aquariums Species Survival Plan suggested to breed the warthogs as the North American zoo population remains under a hundred.

The babies and the rest of the warthog family can be seen in their habitat near the Africa Train Center.

#awww Lilith does it again!

…Brandie Smith, a curator of mammals at the National Zoo, said recently, pandas are the umami of animals; they are simply delicious. It seems that we have the equivalent of panda taste receptors that leave us besotted at the mere sight of one, even when it is sound asleep, curled up in a ball, doing nothing other than being a panda. …
