August births included a bonanza of rattlesnake babies: three banded rock rattlesnakes, five Southwestern speckled rattlesnakes, and 24 Santa Catalina Island rattleless rattlesnakes—great news for this critically endangered species. Among the mammal births were a black howler monkey, a red-flanked duiker, and two mandrills. Hatchings included a Cape thick-knee, six black-headed weavers, and a greater roadrunner.
A pair of male rhinoceros hornbills arrived from Nashville Zoo, and a giant desert centipede was acquired for the Desert LAIR.
