Nashville Zoo announces Tamarin Twins Born

 

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – On Saturday, April 20th, 2019, two cotton-top tamarins were born at the Nashville Zoo. This is the second birth of cotton-top tamarins twins since the opening of Expedition Peru: Trek of the Andean Bear in March 2018. Since cotton-top tamarins are critically endangered in the wild, every birth of captive cotton-tops helps secure the future of this decreasing population.

“Keepers have been monitoring Caqueta for pregnancy over the last several months,” said Sabrina Barnes, Nashville Zoo primate area supervisor. “Typically primates give birth overnight, but this time and the previous time, Caqueta gave birth in the late afternoon, so keepers were able to monitor the birth and watch the rest of the three tamarins interact with the mother and infants.”

Nashville Zoo’s Newest Clouded Leopard Cubs in Public Viewing Area

 

Nashville Zoo 

Nashville ZooNashville, TN – Waiting to see the Nashville Zoo’s newest and cutest clouded leopard cubs in person? Now’s your chance! Guests can see the two cubs through a viewing window at the HCA Healthcare Veterinary Center neonatal animal care room.

After their mother Niran gave birth, the Zoo’s veterinary team removed the cubs to hand rear. The veterinary staff often hand raise clouded leopard cubs due to the common nature of this species to neglect their offspring, which was the case with Niran. Hand rearing also lowers animal stress for future hands-on care.
