Under The Sea

 I love adding zoo trips into my weekly schedule.  It is a bit more difficult to fit it in since I don't have as much flexibility in my schedule the way I used to.  The weather being so inconsistent also makes it difficult to plan ahead.  I'm excited to see more and more of the animals!

Clouded Leopards and Kangaroos

The weather has been pretty up and down so for the zoo, many animals have been kept inside until it stays warmer.  I was SO excited to see Raury and Sanji!  And to see them together was so neat!!

Kangaroos and Goats

 I was excited to see the joeys that were born last season.  They are so big now!  I wish I could have watched them grow up more, but that's okay.  I enjoyed meeting all the new goats!  They are so cute!  And they are definitely more rowdy than the old ones we had.

Saki Monkeys and More

 I was happy to see that the Saki monkeys got moved.  They were difficult to photograph in the enclosure they had been in because of reflections.  However, I am wondering where the lemurs are now...  Hopefully I can find that out soon.  😊

The Zoo is OPEN!

The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo opened up on Thursday for a members-only preview day before opening to the public on Saturday.  I had no intention of going because I didn't think I could fit it in my schedule.  I had actually forgotten about it, but I got an email that reminded me, and I realized that I had a bit of time, so I just went.  I am so glad it worked out!  I love our zoo!

Hazel's Joey fell out!

These are the last of the pictures that I have.  😞  As sad as it is that I don't have more to share with you, I am so thankful to be caught up on editing, and the last time I went there was a day I'll remember for a long time!  It was that day that I was able to see Sukari, the baby giraffe, for her first time out of the barn and in the pasture.  On that day, I also witness Hazel's joey fall out of her pouch.  It was so amazing to see such a tiny joey, but it was even more awesome because Hazel had been much more particular than the other moms about keeping her joey tucked away.  The zookeepers were aware that Hazel's joey had fallen out before, but they had been unable to get to it before it climbed back into it's mom's pouch.  This meant that the zookeepers still had been unable to determine the sex of the joey.  Thanks to me being at the right place, at the right time, I was able to capture these images which have helped them determine that Hazel's joey is a little girl!  Isn't she so adorable?!?!  😍
