    Despite appearances, this attractive couple is rather busy: This past year, they became parents to triplets, who are also on view.

    Grevys' zebras in the African Plains exhibit
    Born earlier this year, baby Terri just made her public debut alongside her mother, Tara. As she gets older, her brown stripes will turn to black. We just hope she remains knobby-kneed, big-eared and hopelessly adorable.

    Meanwhile, his buddy does his best Ewok impression. (All that's missing is the tree fort.)

    Western lowland gorillas in the Congo Gorilla Forest
    Looks like these two had a falling out. Good thing the exhibit has 18 other gorillas for them to befriend.

    A gelada baboon in the Baboon Reserve exhibit
    This hairy fellow is getting a bit big for his britches. Take it easy; we understand how silly it is for a Canadian goose to hang out in the African highlands exhibit, too.

    Seriously, he's just picking fights with everybody.

    This strange-looking creature has the honor of living in the zoo's first exhibit where the admission fee ($5 in addition to general zoo admission) goes directly to the conservation of the animals. Cast your vote for the field project you'd like to support at a kiosk near the exit.

    Brown bears in the Bear Overlook
    Our money's on the former; these guys (along with a third sibling) were orphaned in Alaska as cubs and rescued by the zoo.

    Giraffes in the African Plains exhibit
    These long-necked dudes spend up to 20 hours a day consuming as much as 75 pounds of food. And you thought you pigged out at brunch this weekend.

    Despite hyenas' boisterous reputation, this one seems to lack a sense of humor.

    A butterfly in the Buttery Garden
    In addition to the winged beauties, the greenhouse features heavily perfumed flowers like lilac and echinacea, and plays classical music. In other words, it's the best spa ever.
