Possible Pregnant Porcupine
Our keepers believe that our cape porcupines may be expecting again! The pair, Mkali and Jake Quillenhall, had their first litter of porcupines earlier this year. Ultrasounds are not reliable on porcupines so keepers have been monitoring Mkali's weight and think she may deliver this month. Once born, the porcupettes will spend three to five weeks in their den being cared for by Mkali and Jake. We've installed a den cam so YOU can join our baby watch and keep up with cuteness once they're born. Trust us, you won't want to miss a minute.

Growing Up Neo
On June 5, Nashville Zoo welcomed our first cassowary chick into the world. Since then, Neo has become an internet sensation.
Neo is currently living in a behind-the-scenes area and will eventually be moving to our cassowary exhibit. Until then, keep with her antics on social media and our blog.
