the early spring is the best time to visit the zoo. i spent the most time with the elephants and chimps.
there was one elephant off by himself, and he rocked in place. i’ve read that that is a sign of an unhappy captive elephant. that made me sad.
the chimps were playful. i witnessed one shit on his parent. but mainly i witnessed the constant interaction between the chimps, aggressive at time, but always playful and loving.
it was a great afternoon.
