Monday at the Zoo   1 comment

The Marvin Lewis Community Fund sponsored Learning is Cool. Cincinnati Public School students who were on the “A” honor role twice were invited to an evening at the zoo, and receive a medal, given by members of a local sports team. My daughter met the criterial–great kid!

The Galápagos tortoises were starting to doze off.

A keeper had a white throated monitor named Ollie out meeting the kids. He was pretty cool. It’s not every day you see a three foot reptile on a leash.

The lorikeets were very colorful…

I got to see some of the zoo babies. A couple of wallaby joeys were napping in a pouch.

Watching the clouded leopard made me start to mentally plot a run to Nashville for the weekend.

The black-footed cats were wrestling. Perhaps it was because they were taunting each other.

Amusing to watch them.

Miss Fishing Cat stayed up high, napping, occasionally staring at us.

I got a good profile of her. You can see the muscular frame but short tail of this cat.
