Zoo Peeps Pics

Zoo Vanity Insanity couldn’t be farther from the truth. This is really a tribute to passionate special species animal husbandry health and training specialists. These zoo peeps are pictured with some of the captive born animal ambassadors which reside at conservation centers and living institutions around the world . They represent only a handful of the species of concern. Today, zoos, marine parks and aquariums breed and manage charismatic mega-fauna as well as many slightly more inhibited species (including mini- and micro-fauna) that are just as important, but perhaps less photogenic. I picked an assortment of photos to try to represent a diversity among care takers and their charges. If you want to send a photo, feel free to submit one to jordan@zoopeeps.info.  

Remember that all animals, especially captive wildlife, do not remain cute and small forever. Most captive born animals in zoological parks that are selected to be ‘tamed” and “trained” can still be quite dangerous even as juveniles or subadults. These animal care providers (pictured here) are formally educated and trained under supervision for extensive periods of time before they are permitted to work with potentially dangerous animals on their own. Now, please enjoy the photos which continue on this page.
