I did get to the Detroit Zoo with Dave last Saturday. We got there a little late and then were disappointed to learn that the zoo was closing at 4 p.m. instead of 5 p.m. because they held the Zoo Boo that evening (a Halloween event). We got to see most of the best parts of the zoo; we just had to move quickly. The one other disappointment was that the red pandas were not out. We couldn’t tell if they were merely indisposed or they were officially off display. They have the baby, now, but it shouldn’t have taken all of the pandas to keep little Sherman company.
At The Zoo is my set of all my zoo photos (mostly Detroit’s, a couple from Louisville’s) on Flickr. The critters I photographed included vultures, a gorilla, a lion, and polar bears.
