Naked Animals!

I decided to combine a couple of potential posts into 1 with lots of pictures! Well, ok. A few pictures.

Last week there was a "members only" night at the Rio Grande Zoo. One of the highlights was the introduction of the new baby snow leopard to the public. He was so cute! For some reason he favored one section of the enclosure, so if the keeper brought him close to us, he would immediately scamper back to the other side. I managed to get at least one decent pic.

As darkness fell we ended up in the African section of the park. There were a couple of cheetahs sitting very close to the wall. I snagged this pic just as one finished licking the ear wax out of its partner's ear.

And finally here are a couple of pics of Otto without his swimsuit. Sometimes he just likes to skinny dip. *grins*
