Emu

Emu

Yesterday afternoon we visited the Phoenix Zoo. Although we passed signs warning that the parking lot was full, we found adequate open spots from those who left after a morning visit. Nevertheless, the zoo was filled with people taking advantage of the spring break warm weather. The emu were close enough to ouch which was why there was a sign warning that they bite. Nearby a parrot mimicked those saying “Hello” and “Good bye.” The siamang apes made sounds reminding us of howlers. An anteater paced at the opposite end of its exhibit from where we usually see it. The orangutans were active. We watched Bess move from next to a window to a higher perch where she covered herself with a blanket. Little Jiwa displayed his pole climbing and rope swinging ability. In addition to seeing animals, several flowers were in bloom including roses and a hibiscus.
