> February 8, 2014 - Another curious thing is when I made my Year of the Horse post featuring our wonderful Farm Friend Ben, I checked the Zoo's site and neither the banner or the Calendar had a mention of a Lunar event this year. I thought they just weren't going to do one this year. Maybe they weren't? Who knows. Anyway the Zoo posted to their Facebook page a few days ago. It will be tomorrow. In anycase, I must every year post about this because I feel strongly that the Chinese New Year traditional Lion Dance should not be a part of this event. The sound volume is too loud for most of the Animals. I have witnessed this several times, yet it seems that having it be a part of the event continues to be a priority over Animal Wellness. Please read my extended post
> February 8, 2014 - Zoo Friend Birthday Celebration!? ... Very interesting and curious I must say! The Zoo rarely recognizes, let alone Celebrates the Birthdays of the Zoo Friends. In the post on my other blog, http://iamnotananteater.blogspot.com/2014/01/happy-birthday-gladys-cincinnati.html I wrote a bit about the SFZoo's history in regard to this, as well publicly put it out there as a <hint> that they should do one for Jillian the Tiger Cubs First Birthday on Feb 10th. Did I shame them into it? Who knows, but stop by the Zoo on Monday morning at 10:30a as they give her some special Birthday Treats!
