Last Tuesday I went to the Nashville Zoo to, what else, take photos. The zoo is a beautiful natural resource of not only animals but plant life too.
Without a doubt my true intentions of going to the zoo this particular day was the chance of seeing the baby giraffe. She was born to Margarita the first week of November last year. Her dad is the sweet, Congo! There are loads of good information on her birth including a video on the Nashville Zoo website! A truly exciting time for the Nashville Zoo and the city of Nashville. I got to the zoo just in time on February 15th. At around 2:30 Suzasita came out in the yard with her mom and “auntie”; Congo was waiting for them. It was the first meeting of dad and daughter.
Stay tuned for my next post which will show some of Nashville Zoo’s plant life in winter.
And, almost forgot, in honor of Momma Margarita, I heard that today is National Margarita Day!! Woo HOO!!!!!
Check out the gallery, wild thing, at maryclairecrow.com to see one of my all time favorite photos of Congo!
Last week I took a trip to the Nashville Zoo. It had really been too long, two months since I had seen the little baby clouded leopards. They have gotten so big and the girl has already left for her new home at the National Zoo in Washington DC. She is going there to get acquainted with the baby clouded leopard cubs born this year as possible mates. So it is just Luke and Chet. I wonder if they miss their sister? Here are some photos of the cubs along with some of my other friends who were out enjoying the warm, autumn air one afternoon last week. Another interesting thing while I was at the zoo this particular afternoon: I witnessed three separate scuffles. Two meerkats were at it, two lorikeets were at it and two of the gibbons were at it.
