Just a follow-up to Zoo Church. Attendance was light because the weather was cold – fair-weather members and all. Some tropical animals were off exhibit, but we still had great encounters with the lions, gorillas, and pandas.
This little guy found a new way to ride.
The cutest red panda put on a show for us.
And we learned a valuable lesson courtesy of a mandrill I called Randy. The show he put on was not suitable family entertainment and my daughters were horrified with my interest. That spot of color you see in the picture is what you think it is – and Randy was very enamored with it. Every time he got within fifteen feet of a female, she ran away screaming. I felt like this was a useful example should any of us find ourselves attracting unwanted attention: bare teeth, scream, run.
No means No, Randy!
There’s so much to learn in this big world of ours, kids.
