I hate posting out of order, but behind as usual and I had several photos (along with my comments/opinions) from this day to post, so didn't want to make too many individual posts on my other blog because that's not the nature of that blog. ... Posting in order taken.
Noticed that several of the Cat enclosures had Sand Boxes. To me, this is a nice addition, especially for the Seniors who get arthritis and this is a soft place to rest. You can see in this photo, Amanzi is taking advantage of it! ... Wish the Zoo would have listened to me when I tried to tel them Wishbone needed some soft surfaces. http://projectgetwishbonegrass.blogspot.com/
This was at Ulu the Polar Bear's home. I've seen this before and it just seems dumb. Maybe I'm just not there to see what happens thru the whole melting process, but I've never seen them touched and this one was no different apparently. At least it could have some flavor on it. I know they give all the Bears a bit of Honey as a treat, why not squirt some over the ice block? ... Reminds me of my still not written post about Tiger Cub Jillian's Birthday Party. I'll bump that and write a bit now that I'm thinking of it. She had an Ice Cake, that had no flavors added?? UG.
Sheeps were getting weighed today :) Some got on the scale with ease, some didn't. Sweet and cooperative! Miss Hermosa hopped right up. The Sheep are weighed every Three Months, to make sure they are at a healthy weight and adjustments in diet are made accordingly.
Merlin and Gandolf getting ready for their walk :) The Alpaca's are taken for daily walks to get exercise. Here they are on their way to be weighed before their walk.
