Bawang has taken over as surrogate mom for her infant granddaughter Kabibe.  This is a lucky little baby, because Bawang is a terrific Mom, and she loves babies!

Minnesota Zoo - 2012 : These photos were taken at the Minnesota Zoo on June 1, 2012.  It's a beautiful zoo, and very large.  I had a small zoom lens on my camera on that trip (didn't want to lug my 100-400 through the airport), and so a lot of the photos are not as close as I would've liked them to be.  I've left most of the photos at a 4"x6" size, which makes them nice "looking at" pictures, but not good enough for enlargements.  It was a fun day, and I had a blast, shooting side by side with my brother, Pat.  He out-gunned me with his new point and shoot, zoom camera!

San Francisco Zoo - Western Lowland Gorillas (2009-2010) : "Hasani", a baby Western Lowland Gorilla, just turned one year old on the 8th of December 2009.  He runs around everywhere now.  He likes climbing, and taking back rides.  He puts everything in his mouth, plays with the adults, and loves to pile dirt on his head.  The first photos are the most current, and then the photos go back in time through June 2009. "Bawang" is the surrogate mother to Hasani, and is very attentive and caring.  Having already raised three babies of her own, she is an experienced mother.  Auntie "Zura" is also very interested in little Hasani, and plays with him, taking him for rides.  Hasani was abandoned by his natural mother, but is doing well under the care of the keepers and Bawang.  Hasani has been introduced to the rest of the group, and now stays with them all day.  I will update Hasani photos periodically, so check back and see him grow!

Arizona Senora Desert Museum - 04/2008 : Christian & I spent the weekend in Phoenix to escape the gray & damp weather of Seattle. We were greeted with 95+ degree temps and LOTS of sunshine! Just what the doctor ordered! We drove down to Tucson to do some exploring and went to the Arizona Senora Desert Museum. It's like a zoo, botanical gardens, earth science center and nature preserve all in one place! Check out their <A HREF="http://www.desertmuseum.org/" target="_blank"><font color="#0066FF"><b>WEBSITE</font></b></A> to learn more about the flora & fauna that thrive in the southwest desert.

San Diego Wild Animal Park  -  06/2006 : We picked one of the hottest days of the summer to go to the Wild Animal Park (it was in the high-90s with no breeze - it was miserable!) We decided to pay the extra arm & leg and took a truck tour, which takes you down into the "savanna" to feed the giraffes! It was well worth the money! We'll definitely go back there some day, when it's much cooler tho!

San Francisco Zoo - 2011 : November-December:  Mild weather for Winter.  The Reindeer arrived, and lots of animals were given enrichment during the "12 Days of Christmas".  My Polar Bear photo was picked up by AP, and sent around the world!
October came in with sun, and went out with rain. Activities this month were "ZootoberFest" (a evening activity) and also "Boo at the Zoo" for Halloween.  Many of the animals received special hidden treats, and it was fun to watch them discover them.
Sept :  Summer is over and the leaves are beginning to fall. All the babies (koala, anteater, ibises) are almost full size now.
May-August:  Weather is great, and the animals are enjoying their outside yards.  Spiderman & Tarantulas came for a visit too!
April:  The little Koala is not so little anymore!  The weather is improving, so the animals are enjoying the sunshine now.  
March:  Got an early start on March with a new baby Koala - she is so cute!  All the young ones are growing fast, and Mr. Hippo loves his pool!
February:  Our Hippo is enjoying his new pool and yard, and the baby Anteater is walking around by himself now.  The animals are all enjoying a little bit of sun, after so much rain this winter.
January: A baby Giant Anteater came out to greet the public this month, and we were also "FedEx'd" a full size Hippopotamus!  Thanks FedEx! (who picked up the tab) "When you absolutely, positively need your hippo by the next day!" Ha!

Oakland Zoo - 2013 - 2014 : I had great fun going to the Oakland Zoo for the first time.  They have a lot of different animals that I haven't seen before, and I enjoyed walking around looking at them all. I think my favorite were the White-handed Gibbons, that swing from tree to tree in their exhibit.  The reptile building is very nice, and the animals are well displayed in natural settings.  The Elephants and Lions live (separately of course) in very large open areas, and have plenty of space to exercise.  The Griffon Vulture is a beauty, and I was surprised to find that a Sun Bear can climb way up in the trees!
