The young elephants were wrestling around and having a big ole time. Look at all those smiling faces!
How cute is this?
While some animals were all smiles, others were all show-offs.
The girls even got in some interaction with the local wildlife followed by a liberal dollop of Purell. Thanks Laura! Den was super excited about this one.
My favorite part of the day, however, came when we got to see the jaguar enrichment program. The zoo's jaguars, Nikita and Simone are 17 year old sisters and they are pretty much always asleep. It was so cool to be able to see them up and active in their enclosure.
