Giant clams are back on exhibit! The colors of their fleshy lips are painted by zooxanthellae, a type of teeny-tiny brown algae that produces food for the clams through photosynthesis inside the clams’ tissues. In return, the clams protect the algae from grazing animals, leaving both happy as a clam!

Friday marked a big step for the San Diego Zoo Safari Park’s tiger cub twosome. The approximately 3-month-old, rescued Bengal tiger cub and his 4-month-old companion, a Sumatran tiger cub that came to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park from the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, are settling in nicely to their new home at the Tull Family Tiger Trail. The two cubs were previously spending time at the Safari Park’s Ione and Paul Harter Animal Care Center, but now they are living exclusively at the Tull Family Tiger Trail habitat. Details.
