Yesterday's Adventure @ 01:32 pm
Mason, Eleanor and I went to the "little" zoo yesterday (aka Como Zoo). We mostly just wandered around. Eleanor hadn't been to Como since they added the interpretative center, the rainforest walk, or expanded the polar bear experience. Mason and I hadn't yet seen the Gorilla Forest improvements. So, we did a lot of exploration.
When we first came in, a volunteer was showing off a hedgehog. OMG teh cute! Super-fast, too! Like a real life Sonic!
The ostriches were being weird and weirdly cute, so I had to snap a couple of pictures of them:
The gorilla area was much nicer. Previously, they had a sort of sad concrete environment and now they have a lot more room and a more natural looking habitat. The sun was hot so I sort of forgot to take many other pictures because we were hurry to find shade. I got a kind of crappy shot of the lion who was also trying to hide from the sun:
My favorite part of the zoo is always the Japanese garden. Most of the rest of the pictures are from there. Mason bought a parasol from the gift shop. It has painted cherry blossoms on it. It'll be nice for tomorrow, which is Obon (the lantern lighting ceremony):
