Maria & Chelsea made an appearance with two of our furry friends (Chewy the Gibbon, and Penelope the Lemur) on “El Show De Fernando Hidalgo”. Maria spoke about Zoological Wildlife Foundation and a little bit about what we do. The show went well and Maria did a wonderful job speaking about the foundation and animals they brought along with the short amount of time they had on stage. Chelsea and Maria will be going back regularly to the show and bringing different animals along with them! Keep checking back to see when the next date for the show will be! To view more photos of their appearance then visit the Maria & Chelsea on “El Show De Fernando Hidalgo” Gallery.

Derby is a Bennett Wallaby. He resides with us at Zoological Wildlife Foundation. Derby is now extremely happy since he now has a mate and soon enough Z. W .F. will have baby wallabies as well. Don’t go crazy searching out site for his mate, she will be make her first appearance next week as our new recent addition for the week. Derby’s mate is about a year and a half old her name has been given but no more details will be given here. wallabies are mainly solitary but will gather together when there’s an abundance of resources such as food, water or shelter. When they do gather in groups, they have a social hierarchy similar to other wallaby species. Wallabies are mainly crepuscular. They spend most of the daytime resting in vegetation.

Swim with a buddy! In this case it was Titan our tiger!
We recently put Titan in the pool for the first time, so that he can get used to swimming, and it was a very hot day here so it was a little treat for him to cool off! At first, Titan was a little cautious, and wanted nothing to do with the pool, but then as we got in and started splashing the water it really drew his attention over and he wanted to play with the water, after a little love and guidance, we gave him a little tug, and Titan was in the water! The minute he got in he LOVED it! Titan started swimming around, jumping off the steps so he can swim towards us, and at one point he even went to the deeper side with me, while he was swimming right behind me. We were so proud of Titan. Now that Titan is used to the water, we will be doing this on a usual basis. It’s great exercise too!
