I took some pictures while visiting the Alameda Zoo in Alamagordo. Thought I would share them here.
This is Rocky. He’s really mellow, and when I did the slow blink to him, he did it back! As you can see, he has huge paws!
This is Nicole. She was resting, and very mellow on a sunny day. Their neighbor, Harvey Ocelot, was a bit more active.
Zoos not only display animals for people, but they work to maintain genetic diversity through a “Species Maintenance Plan” and support conservation of species in the wild.
