It's National Zoo Keeper Week and we're sharing the love! To recognize the dedication and hard work of our amazing zookeepers, we are posting an interview of a keeper each day this week. Keeper Jax had some great stories to tell.

Welcome to the Hippo Spa (from National Geographic)
The Calgary Zoo has North America’s largest indoor hippo tank. In the wild, tilapia fish swim alongside wild hippos in the Nile River. At the zoo, tilapia help us keep the tank clean by feeding on hippo waste.
