Bobtail Manx Cat Fails As She Tries To Jump Into Window After A Squirrel
Our Manx is a tailless cat only having a little bobbed nub to offer next to no balance or support, so sometimes, unless she has something to snag with her claws, she just doesnt have the balance to pull off the simplest of cat behaviours... even with a tote for extra height!! Fortunately she has many places in here in which to do so but not the window. She spotted a young squirrel in the tree and wanted a closer look but just couldnt make the leap... poor girl.
Feeding A Black Rhinocerous Up Close and Personal
Black Rhinos are incredible powerful and very endangered animals. I'll probably never make it on an African Safari so when we happened to be around just in time and on the right day for the Rhino experience I had to take advantage of the opportunity to feed this big guy a couple of carrot sticks. He's gorgeous. I was in total awe when I got so close... Stunning creeature

Huge Grizzly Bear Adorable Playing In Water At CMZ Up Close!!
Huge Grizzly Bear Adorable Playing In Water At CMZ Up Close!! Emmett was once considered a nuisance bear living in the wild in Montana. Following being caught in the wild after being naughty for the last time he has made Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. Here he is enjoying a sunny late winter afternoon in his pond. Finding wood scraps to use as a hat or back scratcher. Splashing his massive paws into the water making everyone squeal. Even walking on his hind legs past the windows for that up close and personal moment. All I can say is thank god for the glass... Those claws... Oh my
Gorilla is Bananas... Im His Target!!! Over And Over Again
Gorilla is Bananas... Im His Target!!! Over And Over Again from beginning to end of this video he runs and bashes into this super thick window every time I turn around. First a ruNing bash, then a fake out, then a slow stalking walk, lingering behind me. As I get down to leave he gets up so I return and he looks as if he may wonder off, but not so fast. This is often one of his tricks. Acting as if he is no longer paying attention, wandering off a bit, picking up something to put in his mouth only to return with as much energy as in the very first burst he makes in this clip. Listen to the reactions he gets to this... hilarious!!!
Pregnant Giraffe Training: Blood Draws 101 and We Got To Help
Pregnant Giraffe Training: Blood Draws 101 and We Got To Help!! The Race is on for Giraffe Baby 200 at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. They have not one but TWO pregnant giraffes, both having mated within the same week so who will go into labor first near the end of April 2018? We dont know... But we now know how they train their expectant mothers for upcoming blood draws! We wandered into the exhibit just in time to be asked to help provide a distraction for the other females that weren't in need of this training. Tim was happy to oblige in feeding so many handfuls of romaine lettuce and rye cracker treats to the single ladies while I watched zoo staffers use targets, clickers, needless syringes along with touch of hand to guide the soon-to-be new mothers and get them used to the upcoming procedures.
Gorilla Tries To Start Snowball Fight With Snack Gets Flipped Off Instead
Gorilla Snacks On Snowball, Throws It At Another & Gets Flipped Off!! This video starts off simply enough... A female western lowland gorilla grabs herself a handful of snow for an early March treat. We were delighted, had never had the chance to see that before! Pretty cool!! But just after she settles in near the window, another female emerges from the enclosure upright and running by. As she does so, the snowball becomes a weapon as it is flung towards the newcomer. Running away herself, disappearing from the scene not catching the "bird" the other gorilla throws right back at her.
Cheeky dogs caught stealing crisps from shop
Siamang Monkeys Mating Hoped to Hear Kids Crack Me Up... It Was Dad Instead Siamang Monkeys Mating at the Cheyenne Mtn Zoo little kids all around so I expected to hear something amusing... It was a father that simply says to his daughter "Make good decisions Elise"
Incredible proof that even gorillas hate selfies
Gorilla Attacks Self Man - the Viral Original. This took place in March of 2016. We were going to be moving soon and wanted to get back to the zoo for a few more shots wit our friends. Tim thought he'd snag a self with Kijito in the background. Except he saw how he looked and knew he was about to make his wonderful leap to the window that he often did so Tim recorded instead, capturing this hard hitting action right behind him. Knowing what to expect his reaction was mild to say the least... making everyone who doesn't know our story with them ask "how did he stay so calm?"
