New Babies at the SF Teaching Zoo!

In Winter 2019, zookeepers were so excited to welcome the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo’s first Asian small-clawed otter pups in a decade. Prior to closing, guests were able to see them start to grow and explore. Chitra and Duncan wasted no time, and in July, they introduced us to three newborn pups. The older pups are clumsily doing their part to move their younger siblings from place to place and the parents have begun swimming lessons. It’s never a dull moment with an otter family of nine.

One month later, zookeepers were pleasantly surprised to find Cajun, the white-handed gibbon with a tiny bundle of joy. And Cajun has not been shy about showing her newborn off. She’s often seen laying on her back in sun with her blonde baby on her stomach or tight rope walking around her home while baby holds on tight.

The health and safety of our animal and human families is our top priority. Many new safety measures have been implemented to protect everyone in the zoo. We thank you in advance for keeping our zoo family safe when you visit us. We can’t wait to introduce our kids to your kids!
