Beaver Shot

I'll be randomly posting various critters shot during our trip to the Pittsburgh zoo following AC, so here's a little peak at my beaver:

Blackies

Here are a pair of American Black Bears, one of them pacing in anticipation of dinner, the other napping away the hot day.

This Animal Bites!

At least, that's what the sign said. Of course, you had to go past his head arcing over the fence to notice the extra barrier (I could have reached out and petted him), and... um, look down to see the knee high little sign. He behaved very well, though! Here is Dromendary Camel!

Wolfgang Zoo #8: Elsa



This is our Miss Elsa. She's a dilute tortie tabby, and is around 13 years old. In the last few years she's developed a form of skin cancer that raises nodes on (mostly) her head and neck. Because of their location and the depth of the nodes the vets can't remove them. She seems to be in good spirits and very little pain, but we're keeping an eye on her. As long as she's doing well...



Here she is with her old man, Ivan. They're such a dear old couple.
