What I learned at the zoo.

by Lynn on November 5, 2010

Recently, I went to the zoo. I learned a few things…
Judging by the letters carved on the wall,
wild cats can write.

"FP" stands for "Felines Prevail."

I learned that I’m not the only one who feels grumpy when I’m hungry.

"I don't want to talk to you unless you have food."

I realized that humans and otters have something in common…

When we get old, we get cataracts.

I discovered what I will look like in 10 years…

This is what happens when you don't use sunscreen.

Did you know that sloths are meticulous about their appearance?

Try brushing your hair while you hang upside down!

I saw something disturbing…

Somebody cloned our dog and put her in the fox exhibit.

And in conclusion, I learned that zoo signage can be confusing…

I wanted to compliment you on your awesome Capybara. Very detailed. I am also a fan of Capybara photography. I have a photo of one farting in a pool. (Totally not kidding.)

That’s amazing they cloned your dog! Always lots to learn at the zoo.

LOL What’s with the FP?!

I love the signs – I always crack up when I see signs that contradict each other!

So what you’re saying is, in order to become more enlightened one should visit their local zoo? I should probably stay away as the confusion over the signs might be the thing that pushes this Mom over the edge. Hee! Hee!
Have a fabulous day!

You just never know where you are going to be taught your next lesson.

Literate animals?? Fantabulous :)

The confusing signage made me laugh. Glad your zoo trip was enjoyable.

Fantastic photos of the zoo residents and your insight is, as always, spot on.

I love it! Again, you made me laugh :) It’s been a wonderful week! I hope you’ve had a good one too. I’m so glad that I have friends like you to share some unexpected, yet expected, smiles with once in a while. By the way, how is the novel?
