A Day at the Zoo!

Dear Critterfarians,

How are you?

To celebrate Marmot Day, R and I went to the Minnesota Zoo! It is highly recommended as a year round activity, but the tropical humidity of the Tropics Trail feels especially good in wintertime.

Obviously, we took some pictures! First, from the Minnesota trail section:

Our favorite, favorite funny guy, believe it or not, is the wolverine!

This year all of the wolverines were sleeping, except this one, who was scratching himself or just rolling around and going crazy:

Have you ever seen a peeing puma?!

These two otters are playing grab-ass; one underwater, one above:

R really loved these Visayan warty pigs!

I hope the zookeepers bury treats for them to find in the mud!
