the only thing more hilariously awesome than mating season in the zoo aviary is viewing mating season in company with large numbers of curious, voluble small children. Also, the young red panda was out and very active and I took lots of pictures specifically for my sister, who likes red pandas. and I saw a chipmunk. I like chipmunks. oh, and also - Sossy the baby snow leopard is not dead. I saw his foot move.
