Okay, it's been a while. Zoo's been crowded 'cause of spring break and I was out of town last week, sooo . . .

Went today with a friend from work and his friend and walked around almost the whole zoo.


And it's starting to be baby season. Meet the newest giraffe, only two weeks old.

And here's a young yellow-backed duiker.

And two baby sun bears (up in the tree limbs on the left) which are only the third and fourth sun bears ever to be born in captivity. SD Zoo had #2, also.

And just 'cause this Cuban iguana is one of my favorites to photograph:

But the pic of the day lies beneath the cut.

And we were totally stoked to walk by an exhibit when it was time to feed the snakes. Mmmm, mousies! (The mice were already dead.)

The snake one is totally rad!

Seriously, one of these days we need to make a trip to the zoo together *G*

Yeah, yeah! And the new elephant exhibit opens on the 23rd, which should be really cool. Or, actually, going during some of their later summer hours would be fun too.

Great photos. Baby sun bears!! The Portland Zoo has two adults but apparently they show no interest in, or are incapable of, producing babies.

The snake having dinner is awesome. I mean, one feels a bit sad for the mice (and I'm awfully fond of rodents), but . . . awesome.

That snake has a great big smile on his reptile face.
