Remembering Snoop Logg – Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Backyard

North America Head Keeper, Lindsay Garrett, remembers Snoop fondly:

Snoop Logg was the most effective ambassador for his species conceivable, and he was completely the catalyst of my love for all gars. He was participating, charismatic, and goofy which aren’t traits most folk affiliate with alligator gar. We knew he was particular throughout his first time in with divers. We had been a bit nervous since he had by no means been in with individuals, however then he curiously approached the divers whereas they had been preparing on the ledge. He shortly turned our favourite together with his quirky behaviors like taking part in together with his meals, stopping to stare at visitors via the viewing home windows, or picture bombing our footage of manatees. As time glided by, he turned the manatee welcoming committee (we expect he thought he was a manatee). With each new set of manatees that got here in, he would wait on the door to the again pool so he may go examine them out. He was typically seen swimming his means right into a pile of sleeping manatees or nosing his means all the way in which underneath their tails simply to peak out the opposite facet. Typically this could trigger a bit commotion in the course of the manatees’ feeding periods within the again pool, and if we ever heard a coworker yell “SNOOP!” in loving frustration, we knew precisely what he was as much as.

As tales about him bought shared, he bought a little bit of a fan-following with zoo visitors and workers. Folks would typically ask about him, partially attributable to consideration from social media too, and I even had one visitor say that he visited Manatee Springs solely to get footage of Snoop. After his passing, somebody from the overnights workers wrote that “Snoop was a legend.”  I hope he can keep a legend as we bear in mind him going ahead.
