Nice Day at the Cincinnati Zoo   1 comment

Just when it looked like we’d go the whole month of March without getting out to the zoo, we had some of the best weather we’ve had in a while. The zoo also had some things going on for Easter. We caught the tail end of it, when cougars Joseph and Tecumseh were given melons to roll around.

They rolled them around like toys our coalition plays with.

Such handsome cats.

We wanted to see if the ocelittle born New Year’s Eve was out. We couldn’t find her, but did see an ocelot.

I was playing with my camera, trying to use my manual focus in some of the darker enclosures, where it seems to struggle. One result was a decent shot of the fishing cat. They had put some fish in her enclosure to chase after.

I also got a picture of the black-footed cat at the far end of the enclosure.

The other one stood up top and judged me.

Miss Caracal, on the other hand, was posing, and looking gorgeous.

The Snow Leopard Trust was pointing out that snow leopard mating season has been going on. I have no official word, though I did want to check on Renji. She and Nubo, however, were having a cat-nap.

I thought it was birds of a feather that flocked together.
