Today is gorgeous. It's over 60 degrees. No snow. No gale force winds. A perfect day for an outdoor activity, like chasing the five year-old all the hell over the zoo - which is full of hills and stairs and loose gravel - while wolverines and baby musk ox watch.
Actually, we couldn't find the wolverine, but that doesn't mean the wolverine wasn't watching us! (This is how I make zoo trips more exciting, by pretending I can see cut wires or tunnels burrowed under the enclosures that are empty. The kids love it, I tell you.)
We did get to see a few beasties on the move that we normally only find sleeping. Also, camels sound like wookies.

|Polar Bear, every day hustlin', hustlin'|
|Snow Leopard, moving with intent|
|Bactrian Camel, sounds like wookie|
|Happy Bear is Happy...also fatal (Grizzly)|
