We had one last birth/hatching at the zoo before the end of 2015. A rose hair tarantula egg sac that has been monitored since it was found came to life and over 200 tarantulas were inside.
They are on exhibit in the zoo now, come by and see them!
Autumn the Giraffe is Pregnant!
Greenville Zoo officials have announced that Autumn, the zoo’s nine-year-old Masai giraffe, is pregnant. The zoo’s veterinary staff confirmed the pregnancy through hormone analysis, and after reviewing zoo keepers’ daily logs. Autumn could give birth as early as February.
