I don't remember what these birds are called, but they sure are neat animals!
The Polar Bear was just chill'n...
Elephants are always entertaining! The elephant in this photo I took and the elephant I sketched below are in the same pose, but they are actually two different elephants. The one I sketched was missing a tusk.
My favorite exhibit was the kangaroo exhibit. Once inside the gates, there were no barriers between the animals and the guests. They were just free ranging! I got to sketch them and also take some reference that would be great if I ever want to animate a kangaroo!
