Life has sure been busy here in Milwaukee, but these day’s I feel a lot like the tiger in this image from the Milwaukee County Zoo, on the prowl for adventure. In these incredibly tight financial times being able to go zipping around the world is a bit unrealistic. Yet there are still new adventures to be had here in Wisconsin. I recently took a trip to the Milwaukee County Zoo, just a few minutes from my house. For seeming like such a small town most of the time Milwaukee really does have all the big metropolis features. The Milwaukee Zoo easily has as much variety as the giant zoo I went to in Thailand. And even though I worked there for years, I always manage to find new surprises when I go. Like last time when I learned that seals actually have toenails!
Now I have to plan another trip to the Zoo this fall. On July 24th, three adorable lion cubs were born! You can see them at the Milwaukee County Zoo website or by watching a video of them with their mother on YouTube. We’ve already been lucky enough to enjoy the a youthful bundle of joy in Mahal, the young orangutan sent to our zoo after his mother rejected him, and adopted by our adult female orangutan. And now we will be getting even more baby fun!
