ZOO HISTORY: In 1876, the Zoo was founded by the state for the “recreation and education of the people”. The original collection consisted of a herd of 52 deer and a flock of purebred Southdown sheep. Three years later, four camels and two sea lions were donated to the Zoo. #ThrowbackThursday #tbt #zoo #marylandzoo #baltimorezoo #history #baltimorehistory #baltimore #charmcity #bmore #deer #throwback #marylandhistory

Peekaboo! In case you missed it, tiny furry faces are popping up all over the prairie dog habitat. Do the pups keep getting cuter each season or is it just us? 😍 #prairiedog #prairiedogpup #babyanimals #pups #zoo #marylandzoo #baltimore #zooborns
