Walter the warthog and other curiosities.

Pictured below: Walter the warthog is taken for a walk through the Cincinnati Zoo on a warm day in March. During the stroll, he abruptly dropped to the ground to roll around – I'm guessing he had to scratch an itch on his back! 

Not sure if this is the same peacock every time, or if there are multiple peacocks roaming the zoo… regardless, he's a lovely fellow, and this kid just reaaallly wanted to catch him and touch his colorful feathers!

Did you know that a group of flamingos is called a flamboyance? Well, I also witnessed a flamboyance of flamingos on a recent zoo visit. Quite a noisy bunch! "They have small brains," explained one of the zookeepers, as the birds appeared easily distracted and had to keep being redirected.
