Happy Hollow Zoo - before it reopens after reconstruction

Hi everybody who reads my blog. This is a blog post about a zoo I've been going to since I was little. My friend is the Zoo Curator so I get to go behind the scenes and learn about the animals.
This is a Foosa. It's from Madagascar and it's endangered. It eats lemurs, which are also from Madagascar. I helped to excercise her by waving a scrub brush back and forth around her cage. She also likes playing with Elk-flavoured bubbles. She got really excited when we took the bubbles out and looked sort of sad when we put them away. She'll be getting a beautiful new habitat as soon as the zoo is finished.

 This is Sophia the Jaguar I first met her when she was a baby.

This is a little porcupine I got to pat. I also got a few of her quills and one of her whiskers. This is the play ground that is under construction and that I got to play on.

Hiya Maia,

It must be so much fun going to the zoo with Val. It's neat to see pictures of all the animals that you know.

I love San Francisco & think it is great that you are exploring the city for a little while.

Are you going trick or treating tonight? If so, what will you be?

Happy Halloween.

Auntie L.

When you say, "I also got a few of her quills..." I hope you don't mean IN YOU!

Such a cutie... I want to pat it too.

Nice photos!
