Here's Hudson grabbing a drink of water from the flowing hose...

His mom, Aurora, was oblivious to the unusual throngs of people (unusual for this time of year), as she snoozed away in the warm sunlight:

As promised, here is the video of the wolf howl. It's not easy to spot the animals themselves: I didn't want to take a chance on missing it so I just filmed where I stood. If you peer through the trees in the approximate middle of the screen you should be able to make out one of the wolves, who seemed to be the "Alpha Dog". But the sound of this just goes right through you, doesn't it?
It had already been a moderately full day for us when we left the Tundra Trek so we headed back to the car for the journey home. We did make one more stop, though: at the Americas pavilion. I have a presentation to give this coming Friday on the black-tailed prairie dog, giant Pacific octopus and spectacled owl; I wanted to check them out and make a few notes on their locations relative to each other so I won't get lost while giving the "tour"! While we were there we stopped to check out the primates in the pavilion; as usual, the common marmosets and the 2-toed sloth were having a hopping good time together:
Also, apropos of nothing in particular, here is a beautiful photo of a Nile soft-shelled turtle which I took during the plant tour last week but have neglected to post here before now:

I will be spending a good portion of the upcoming week working on my three presentations. I'll post them here, one at a time, when I feel they are at the point where I can do so.
Pretty soon you all can become Zoo Volunteers without having to attend any classes, just by following along with my blog!
