A giant leopard was spotted at the Zoo! No need for alarm though it’s a giant leopard MOTH that is native to Maryland. #nativewildlife #insect #leopard #moth #spotted #MarylandZoo (at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore)

In the wild, Dik-diks are VERY vulnerable to predation by animals like lions, hyenas, crocodiles, and even pythons. Because of the constant threat of being eaten, they are naturally skittish, often hiding. 
The Dik-diks at the Zoo don’t have to worry about predators, but they still exhibit their natural instincts to stay in areas where they can easily hide. #dik-dik #MarylandZoo #hide #IGzoo #animal (at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore)

NEW AT THE ZOO: If all the animals at the Zoo played hide and seek, this lizard would probably be the winner because of its ability to change color to match any environment. It’s the chameleon! #marylandzoo #oustalet’s #chameleon #camouflage #green   (at The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore)
