I've posted some of my better photos in my scrapbook.

Here's a couple to get you started...

         

Elle and I managed to cover the entire zoo!  I didn't think it could be done (and we didn't collapse of heat exhaustion, either).  I also managed to get melted blue popsicle down the front of my shirt like a three-year-old, but that was the only blemish on the entire day.  The new camera works awesome (even if the owner isn't quite certain what she's doing with it yet).  I just got the camera the day before, so I had it set up to make all the decisions (I haven't had much of a chance to fiddle with all the settings yet).  It did a nice job!

this is a video of Coda, the snow leopard at The Toronto Zoo. His zoo keeper was at the exhibit, and had just fed him, so he was feeling rather playful - which opted for an extremely cute video :)

Hi Angelicque,
We think she has given birth to two cubs.  As to when they might be on display it could be a while (several months) as Animal Care has to be certain that they are healthy enough and that the mother won't be too nervous. We're very excited at these births as they are such rare animals.  When everything is ready we will send out a press release, so you will probably hear that way.

Hello!When I visited the zoo last Saturday, I had asked about the snow leopards being separated - and was told that the female had given birth! I am writing to inquire about how they - the mother, father and cubs - are doing, and when they might be on display. :)

Thank you for your time!

Security:Public
Mood: ecstatic

so my husband and i went to the zoo yesterday, and upon visiting my favorite exhibit, i was concerned to see the female snow leopard separated from her mate.
the male (Coda) was in the exhibit itself, and the female (Tigga) was locked away from him in the cage.
this concerns me because i know how much these two adore each other, i always see them grooming each other and snuggling.
my first thought was...maybe she's pregnant?

so i went to find a zoo keeper, who wasn't sure why either - and also figures that could be the only reason why they were separated: pregnancy!.
she told me to ask guest services on my way out if they knew what was going on. so i did. ;)
this really friendly girl paged the snow leopard's zoo keeper and asked why they were separated and if the female was in fact pregnant. he replied "she's not pregnant...anymore! she just gave birth!"

cue me and the girl jumping up and down and smiling and giggling happily :)


so yes...snow leopard cubs!!!!
as soon as i hear any official news i will let you all know :):):)

Zoo Elephants Mourn Matriarch

I visited Patsy up close (in the keepers' enclosure) twice within the past 5 years. She was an amazing elephant. They had many stories about her.

Welcome to the Toronto Zoo community!

To start off, here are a few pictures I've taken on four occasions at the zoo over the past two years. Please do not use them without my permission. Thanks.
