Saturday afternoon at the zoo

Arctic fox

I did get to the Detroit Zoo with Dave last Saturday. We got there a little late and then were disappointed to learn that the zoo was closing at 4 p.m. instead of 5 p.m. because they held the Zoo Boo that evening (a Halloween event). We got to see most of the best parts of the zoo; we just had to move quickly. The one other disappointment was that the red pandas were not out. We couldn't tell if they were merely indisposed or they were officially off display. They have the baby, now, but it shouldn't have taken all of the pandas to keep little Sherman company.

Grevy's zebra

At The Zoo is my set of all my zoo photos (mostly Detroit's, a couple from Louisville's) on Flickr. The critters I photographed included vultures, a gorilla, a lion, and polar bears.

Shame you didn't get to see the red pandas. Is that an Artic fox?

Yes, it is. I've only seen them in a partially grey coat, typical of the transition in late summer. This guy (or gal; I didn't ask) is all set for winter.

I was really looking forward to the red pandas, but what can ya do. I understand they're busy.
