Our Elephant Died!
That was the news I heard on the radio last week. The Riverbank Zoo’s female elephant died, supposedly of natural causes.
Being quite fond of this and all elephants, we decided to go to the zoo last weekend and pay our respects.
Well the daddy elephant looked very solemn, choosing to eat some comfort food….
And so we wondered if our other friends at the zoo ahhh, got wind of the news?
The Bears looked quite angry..
…but seemed to make up….
The Lion family was laying around, bummed about the news..
The kids didn’t seem to take it too bad…
The baboons were picking at each other….
And the Giraffe showed his ass….
Even our little monster was upset and broke free from her room!
Still others seemed at peace, like the freakish Tapir…
That went for a swim
The Tortoise didn’t seem to lose a step….
The monkeys were playing
The Penguin Girl was preparing her Happy Feet…
And Mr. and Mrs. Gorilla were letting their baby run wild!
While Mommy watched…
and Daddy watched from a far…
Soon, though, the baby came to play with his mum…
and that’s when I realized I had something in common with the momma Gorilla….
My feet and toes are starting to look like hers!
That’s about all there is for now knuckleheads.
I will try to do a better job next time.
One final bonus question….
What is the difference between a Turtle and a Tortoise?
No Googling now!
Have a great weekend!!
