On the second day of Christmas...

... can you guess where we went?




And it's even all free range and nice to the environment and shit. Which is probably why we didn't get to see half of the animals (bloody bandicoots, hiding in the vastness). With a fake savanna the size of 550 football fields to roam in, why would you hang out near the bits the tourists are able to get to?

At least the cheetah was willing (or hungry).

Did you hear about the lion who jumped out of his enclosure in the San Francisco zoo? I think he killed one person and mauled several others in the zoo cafe....

of course, recent reports indicate a couple of the victims taunted him... and it seems that he tracked them down...

we totally went to the zoo on the 26th and I have this irrational fear of the animals getting loose, so I was doing my classic gosh I hope that lion doesn't eat us or let's just pray the kangaroo doesn't bolt over that fence and beat us all to a bloody pulp and THEN i came home and read where a tiger had escaped at the zoo in san francisco. nice.

Yes, it's horrible that someone got killed by a tiger, but you know, tigers get killed by people all the time, and that doesn't make us think that people are evil and horrible. Nobody wipes out other life forms like humans do.

On a happier note, I heard that when they opened the zoo in the Bronx with the special glassed-in area for the humans to see what the chimps were doing, the chimps all came and leaned up against the glass to see what the *humans* were doing! :-)

The fake-savannah zoo looks awesome.

I'm with you, Grace :) Although we saw the news about the tiger mauling just before we left for the zoo, so that made us a little uncomfortable!
