This is Nora. She was born at the zoo on Nov 6, 2015. Five days after her birth, they had to pull her from her parents (who are still at the zoo), since the mother was no longer caring for her. They still keep her separated from the older polar bears. When she gets bigger, she'll probably end up at another zoo.
We managed to get to the zoo early enough to see her swim.
She's such a cutie!
Here's a video about her from YouTube (in case you want to see more).
It always seems like the animals are sleeping when we go to the zoo. But these lions just cracked us up. Looks like they had partied hard!
They're zonked out all over!
Couldn't resist taking this one. :)
This here is Oswald Cobblepot. He was named via a naming contest (the little fella was born in March). Gee, I wonder why that name won?
These are Humboldt penguins.
My daughter just loves penguins of all sorts!
The hyena in the pond is searching for some goodies (even though there aren't any fish in the pond!). You can also see the zebras in the background.
So... Do you like to visit zoos? If you do and you're ever in the Columbus area, this is a nice one to visit. We may go back some day (Hubby goofed and didn't clear his memory stick and he ran out of room, so he didn't get all the pictures he wanted).
Hope you have a great weekend!
