Happy hump day! Normally when we think of animals with humps we think about camels, but look at Daisy’s neck - what is that hump? White Rhinos have big, heavy heads, so they have a lump of muscles on their neck to help hold it up!

Hoppy Panamanian Golden Frog Day! As a national symbol in Panama, golden frogs can be seen in images all over the country. Spotting one in the wild however is likely impossible because they are critically endangered and possible extinct. Breeding Panamanian golden frogs is one of the Zoo’s most successful conservation projects - rearing around 300 frogs a year!
