Sumatran Tiger

Sumatran Tiger

Many Phoenix Zoo employees and guests dressed in Halloween costumes today. Some animals interacted with pumpkins as others frolicked on this beautiful fall day with temperatures in the low 80s. Several reticulated giraffes reached high for their food.  A Thompson’s gazelle grazed behind one of his long necked friends who assumed a curtsy position to nibble on greens. Two bighorn sheep posed atop a Papago sandstone butte. After the Sumatran tiger completed a walk around his open space, he climbed on a flat rock to watch the passing pedestrian traffic. Only a couple of meerkats were out as two rabbits played with one another. How did they get there? A mandrill stuffed his colorful face with pumpkin seeds. Next door two Hamadryas baboons peacefully slept against the cool rocks next to a window. The rhinoceros iguana guardedly eyed those looking at him. Three orangutans played with one another. What a treat to visit the zoo!
