Have you been into visit our fennec foxes yet? kesi and zahra are a little shy but have settled in beautifully. did you know that fennec foxes are native to northern africa and live in hot, dry desert regions? #wildlifehq #wildlifehqzoo #bigpineapple #fennecfox #zoo

Have you been in to see our gorgeous maned wolf girls? eartha and dahlia have settled in beautifully in their new exhibit. you can find them in the farm/reptile section of the zoo, opposite berry, the cassowary.

did you know that the maned wolf is not a true wolf? nor is it a fox! they are most closely related to the bush dogs of south america. they are the tallest canid species due to their disproportionately long legs. #wildlifehq #wildlifehqzoo #bigpineapple #visitsunshinecoast #thisisqueensland #seeaustralia #manedwolves #manedwolf

Today the animals at wildlife hq celebrated an early halloween ! our volunteers created some spooky pumpkins that we filled with treats and had fun capturing the reactions. did you know that the word lemur means ‘night wandering ghost’? our black and white ruffed lemurs enjoyed checking out their pumpkins and searching inside for treats. #wildlifehq #wildlifehqzoo #seeaustralia #visitsunshinecoast #thisisqueensland #halloween #trickortreat #pumpkin #zoo #halloweenenrichment

Did you know that insects and fruit make up the bulk of the diet of cotton top tamarins, but they will also eat sap, nectar, and even small reptiles and amphibians occasionally. #wildlifehq #wildlifehqzoo #bigpineapple #zoo #sunshinecoast #visitsunshinecoast #thisisqueensland #cottontop #cottontoptamarin #littlemonkey #blossom

If you hadn't already guessed, it's koala joey season at wildlife hq!
september is save the koala month so we will share koala facts over the next few weeks.

in south east queensland, breeding runs from around august through to january, with most joeys born in the summer months. they are born incredibly tiny and underdeveloped and make their way up into their mum's pouch. they stay there until they are about 6 months old.

our joeys range in age from about 5 months to 8 months and if you are visiting the zoo you will definitely have a great chance to see them in the koala exhibit.

check out little arlo! isn't he the sweetest? #wildlifehq #wildlifehqzoo #bigpineapple #zoo #sunshinecoast #visitsunshinecoast #thisisqueensland #seeaustralia #arlothekoala #koala #koalajoey #savethekoala #thecutest
