A few hours spent at Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City are always nice! We are fans of the small animal building, because we love critters like snakes and spiders! We got to watch a couple of zookeepers working with the elephants. Doing basic training is not to amuse human zoo-goers, it helps zookeepers and veterinarians encourage behavior that can help them take good care of the animals. It's currently the "off" season, so admission is a little cheaper. (and Wednesdays in November and December are free for 2019!)
Information if you go:
October, full of mice, but totally up for more.
Iris, free of THE TOOOOOOB. (She got stuck. There was much frantic yet careful cutting.)
Got a good shot of little Curly, my Curly Hair (Brachypelma Albilosum) tarantula. This picture makes them look way bigger than they actually are!
Met this cute little red fox at Dragon Fyre Faire. (I know, we all want one, but they are illegal to keep in captivity in Idaho- the faire had to obtain special permits- and his handler let us all know why they do *not* make good pets. She is from Utah and has him for education purposes. So dang cute, though.)
My kids have been long-time fans of The Adventure Zone, so Child the Younger has decided the time has come to GM a game of our own. I am going to be a halfling thief named Magpie. I have NO idea what I'm doing, but it will be fun to see what this adventure brings!
