The Dhole, also known as an Asian Wild Dog, is one of the 64 species at the Minnesota Zoo that is endangered. There are only 2,500 individuals left in Asia in the wild and their populations continue to decline as their habitats are destroyed and their food source (deer) are hunted. Biologists at the Minnesota Zoo are trying to help the remaining populations in Thailand.
Check out mnzoo.org/blog to find out more on the work that the Minnesota Zoo is doing in partnership with the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute to help wild Dholes. #savingspecies#threatenedthursday#savewildlife#wesavespecies#minnesotazoo

Happy #whiskerwednesday! Like walruses and bearded seals, the sea otter has thick whiskers known as vibrissae (vye-bris-ee). These thick whiskers are sensitive and help otters detect the presence of prey or predators that may be nearby. #mnzoo#savewildlife#dayattheMNZoo
