Still , the makings of a good blog start with regular entries, so ill do it no matter the cost to my own personal health, because who really needs that anyway?

And smack dab in the middle of the primates was a cage with a couple raccoons! It was awesome to watch the zookeeper feed the Orangutangs carrots, squash, oranges, apples, and bread - they loved the apples! Then I stopped in the small visitor center to be told they'd ...
