SARC Membership Meeting

Sept. 11, 2014: Meeting was called to order at 7:03 PM


Presentation by Bob Rodriguez about the San Antonio Zoo. We learned interesting facts such as:

  • Two headed turtles are common but short-lived.
  • What’s the difference between a monkey and an ape? Apes have no tail, monkeys do.
  • Hippos are very territorial. Despite being herbivores they are the most deadly to humans due to their aggression. Fish clean their teeth.
  • The SA Zoo has one of only 3 mating pairs of Okapis. This rare animal has the rear of the zebra, body of a horse, head of a giraffe and a 1 foot long tongue.
  • Why do elephants fling sand on their back? As a sunscreen and dirt smothers parasites living on the back. How can you tell the difference between an African and a Asian elephant? Ear size. African earlobe is huge. Asian smaller. Asian female elephant does not have tusks. Ears help elephant cool off but not by fanning, the fanning causes blood to flow and cools the blood like a radiator.
  • Lions hate water. Tigers love it. 3 main breeds of tigers: Sumatran (smallest), Bengal (medium) and Siberian (largest).
  • Giraffes only live 15-20 years, in captivity up to 25.
