Happy National Zoo Keeper's Week! 

Our keepers are the heart of what we do here at Tanganyika. They work extremely hard every day to ensure that our animals receive top-notch care. We would definitely not be where we are today without their commitment, love, and passion for our animals. The bonds that our keepers and animals have formed is truly remarkable to see. We consistently have visitors who mention how well-cared for and happy our animals look and that is due to our amazing keepers team.

Thank you, keepers. It takes a special person to do what you do. We appreciate you all more than we can express in one week!

Our carnivore team works with a variety of cats including cheetahs, clouded leopards, jaguars, snow leopards, amur leopards, lions, pallas' cats, servals, and white tigers as well as honey badgers and bat-eared foxes. 

Here's a quick look into our awesome carnivore team...
