We made a return to the zoo this morning, and enjoyed a surprisingly uncrowded visit. The lemurs were very active, and I got a better picture this time. Check out that long furry black tail.
I took a shot of a friendly meercat for Mary P.
Isn't this one quite bizarre looking? It is a Dwarf Zebu, a breed of cattle from India. When there isn't food available, it can survive from the fat in its hump, much like a camel.
We admired this remarkably multi-colored rodent from Southeast Asia. SwingDaddy said, "Look, somebody pimped the squirrel!" Unfortunately, the photo doesn't do justice to the boldness of its luxe look.
Highlight of the day: We took Q on his first carousel ride. Whee!
