3-27-11 Ring-tailed Lemurs

These guys were peeking out of their little hut to see what was going on. Their friends were huddled behind them at the back of the hut to stay out of the 30+mph winds.

3-26-11 Red Kanagroo

This guy was just hanging out in the kangaroo pen at the Tanganyika Zoo. As they move, I thought Mother Nature played a cruel trick on them in making their front legs so short, while their back legs are so long.

3-25-11 Caninie Computing

Keilo decided he was going to help Tim with a project. After I took the picture, he put his foot on the keyboard and hit the "play" button on the video that Tim was editing. Guess he wanted to see Tim's handy work!

3-23-11 Let Sleeping Birds Lie

This is a lorikeet. Lorikeet's are a small to medium-sized arboreal parrots characterized by their specialized brush-tipped tongues for feeding on nectar and small fruits. This one kept falling asleep on the branch. Unfortunately, it didn't get to sleep long as the wind kept shaking the branch he was perched on.

2-22-11 Reticulated Giraffe

Went to Tanganyika Wildlife Park today with a friend to take pictures. This little zoo on the far west side of Wichita was fascinating. Most of the zoo is "hands-on"; you can touch and feed the animals. They also have several animal handlers walking around holding animals that you can ask questions about and touch.

3_18_11 One Clean Dog

Today was "Give the Dog a Bath" day. If I keep him brushed, I don't have to bathe him that often. However, both were WAY overdue. He's pretty good about letting me brush him as long as I do it on a table. Getting him in the bathtub is another story. He's not thrilled, but will finally go. But look out after the bath.....he runs around acting all silly, rubbing against on the carpet, against the couch to get the water off of him. This dog HATES being wet!!!
