Red River hog

Red River Hog

We visited the Columbus Zoo today. The animals, resident and transient, were quite active. Brutus and Buckeye, the two young grizzlies, are often playing, but today both the black bear and an older grizzly, who are usually sleeping, were pacing. The male moose munched tree branches. The barn owl streched its wings. The timber wolf posed in front of his den. The leopard slept in a tree. The Red River hog, pictured below, stood his ground. The sights and smells from a variety of flowers and blossoming trees added to the day, too.
