Everybody's ZOOIN' IT

"Honey, what are you looking at-- we're vegans now, remember? Stop staring at the fat toddler."
Who says petite giraffes don't exist? I believe ...
Yes, that is a black giraffe. I don't get it either (not Photoshopped!)
Camel Mafia
Zebra + Donkey = ?
Check that baby into a club ... and note the false equation above.
Sleepy lizards! Shingleback skinks are such romantic creatures and can stay with the same lover for over 20 years. They even stay by their dead loved one's side if they get run over and appear to mourn them. Now that's commitment and that's love.

The Saint Louis Zoo is one of the best things in the city. It's free, has a ton of creatures and almost all the popular wild cats, and is a perfect date place for animal geeks like JJ and me. We would exclaim at insects we saw in our favourite David Attenborough documentaries and try out our behavioral ecology skills. I used to read nothing but animal science books as a child and memorize tons of facts and their Latin names. Nerd much? Definitely.

There's a stingray exhibition I'm pumped to see when I head back into town. Maybe I'll snap more interesting photography to share with any of you animal lovers out there. My favourite place at the zoo? The open indoor butterfly garden. One landed on me once, they're not afraid of people either if it's not a crowded day.

I still miss the Toledo Zoo, home of some of my fondest childhood memories. I miss you, Ohio ♥

Life update: I have recently been obsessed with Netflix. Watch Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time if you haven't already. It is an awesome remake of the video game and the movie does deliver! The action scenes and running from the bad guys really look like something you'd see in Uncharted 2. Sorry, my nerd is showing! Has anyone seen Pirates 4 yet? Any other summer theatre recommendations? All I do is stew in my chair all day and watch TV, such a bum. Headed to the coffeeshop today for some good ole caffeine-induced productivity!

I take it you took these pics/edited them?

lol, I saw Pirates 4; I'd say better than the last 2 of the trilogy at the very least (although I'm sure there are those out there that would disagree), but it wasn't anything that blew me out of the water.. pretty much what I expected based on the other movies. Not too bad though, if you're bored. :P
