John and his fellow keepers are always on the lookout for ways to entertain Mel the gibbon. That has always meant spreading a variety of toys around his exhibit. But ever since Mel’s mate died, John made the move of playing with him one-on-one.

For Toronto Zoo vet Chris Dutton, the report of a scrap between the cheetahs brings conflicting emotions: anxiety at not immediately knowing the extent of injury, admiration at the cats’ ability to defend themselves and wonder at the opportunity to handle one of them up close.

This is the day curatorial keeper Andrew and his fellow staff have been waiting for: the first-ever hatching of a Komodo dragon in Canada. But his excitement quickly turns to worry over the possibility of infection in the hatchling.
