Indiana the red-tailed boa says “thankssssss to my keepersss” for being not just my caregiver, but also my advocate. Snakes are so widely misunderstood, but our staff work to change that mindset everyday through education. Stop by the Zoo and sign your own letter of appreciation for our passionate animal care staff for National Zookeeper Week. 🐍💚 • • • #nationalzookeeperweek #centralfloridazoo #snakesofinstagram #snakeawareness #worldsnakeday

Eagles have surprisingly high-pitched calls for a bird their size. Thanks to our keeper Madison for this great, myth-busting video on this beautiful #4thofJuly! 🇺🇸 • • • • • #centralfloridazoo #baldeagle #USA
