Meet Zazu

Southern Ground Hornbill
August 11, 1995
Ground Hornbill

Zazu has her own way of doing things. She likes to wash her food before she eats it. She likes to sing duets with her mate, Gumby. Zazu does all of the incubation while Gumby brings her nesting material and food. Zazu is the first one to run to the front of the habitat when she sees a staff member. Both southern ground hornbills' favorite toy is a rain barrel, or really anything that they can pound on with their beaks that makes noise. They also enjoy mirrors.
