Amur Tiger Cubs

The Amur tiger cub triplets have officially been introduced to the big yard. According to an update from the zoo’s Facebook, “The female tiger cub was the most adventurous and loved to chew on the grass. Both males were a little more timid, but eventually they gained the confidence to explore!” The keepers spent “Caturday”, aka Saturday, teaching these little ones how to get around in their new space! Seriously, so cute right?

Neva & Nuniq the Polar Bears

Neva & Nuniq made their big debut at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium back in April. They’ve been growing, and playing, ever since. The twins were born last November, just like their cousin Amelia Gray! Neva, Nuniq, and their mom, Aurora, can be found in Polar Frontier on alternating days from Anana and Amelia.

Aqua the Manatee

Agua the manatee comes to Columbus from Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo after her mother was struck by a boat propellor. Although her mom didn’t make it, Agua got stronger! Now 18 months old, she’s making a big splash at Manatee Coast. Agua won’t be at the Columbus Zoo permanently, as they are working towards her full rehabilitation and release!

“Agua marks the 26th manatee we have helped rehabilitate through this collaborative program, and we are looking forward to monitoring her progress as she grows stronger,” said Becky Ellsworth, curator of the Shores region at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.

JJ the Gorilla

JJ may be one years old, but he’s still a baby to us. JJ weighs 18 pounds now, but one day, he’ll be as big as his dad Mac. Male Western Lowland Silverback Gorillas can weigh up to 600 lbs when fully grown! For now, he’s still small enough to ride around on Mom’s back.

Amelia Gray the Polar Bear

This adorable polar bear cub is 10 months old! It seems like just yesterday that she was being introduced to Columbus. Amelia loves to play with her mom Anana. She has become one of the most beloved babies at the Zoo, and everyone, including me, is enjoying watching her grow up.
