rainy day at the oregon zoo

December 29, 2008

went to the oregon zoo with kim, sully and dom in october i think. november maybe. a lot of the animals were hiding or in their heated night quarters. but i did get a chance to see Samudra, the new baby elephant. she is a cute one.

i belive i mentioned this last time, but i still think one of the best parts of the oregon zoo is the Great Northwest section. these animals were prety unphased by the inclement weather. no lynx that day, but the otter was playful

and the cougars were sleeping together again now with a third, seasonal bedfellow.

a pumpkin which probably weighed almost as much as one of them.

the wolves weren’t out again. i need to figure out what is the best time to be at their enclosure.

this huge guy was floating around
