|Is this a terrifying moment? Not really.|
|90% of the original forests in Madagascar are gone, and so are most of the lemurs. It was a cold day, by the way.|
Something happened that has never really happened to me before. It was the gorilla compound...one of the younger gorillas was interacting with the zoo visitors. That was new to me; most animals don't seem to note our existence unless they see us as a threat. I'm not used to the idea of maintaining eye contact, and making symbolic facial expressions and hand motions. But it was happening this time.
|No, I don't feel a "circle of life" kinship with this particular animal...|
Many thanks to Mrs. Geotripper who took most of the pictures for today's post.
