As with all my blogging, please note that what I have written below comes from my observations and public articles I've read or viewed, and not from the LA Zoo itself. My blogs are not affiliated with the Los Angeles Zoo. I am not an expert, only a quiet observer, and reader on the animals. LA Zoo is near my residence and has been a convenient and wonderful place for me to observe these wonderful creatures. I began observing them when I started walking at the LA Zoo for my health. (The zoo's beauty and life kept me motivated to keep walking.) The animals grabbed my attention, and so I began researching outside articles and videos as I continued to observe these incredible animals. Thus, my blogs.
Alafia is the final Los Angeles Zoo gorilla that will be introduced to my readers. But, she has not yet made her public debut. Alafia came to the LA Zoo from the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, Washington a few months ago, but she has been in the back being introduced to the family group one by one. The last to be introduced to Alafia were Rapunzel and Glenda, who just disappeared from the public on the 24th so that they could meet the new girl. Since the final introductions are in the process of being made, I figured I'd stall a bit before I went on to another exhibit to introduce its animals to my readers.
So, today I will share some of my favorite zoo moments. To see more of them, you can go to My Favorite Zoo Pics page. Below are some of these pics.
