Here are a few more shots of Inukshuk; you never know how many more I'll be able to get in the short time he's here:

I went to the Indian Rhino pavilion again to drop in on Ashakiran but my timing was quite bad. Not only did I just miss her (the keepers were doing a changeover of the animals in the main part of the exhibit) but I also caught just the tail end of the tapir as it left the viewing area. That was particularly disappointing as, for some reason, I have not seen the tapir on exhibit since back in the summer. In any event, Vishnu came out to "replace" Asha, so I took some pictures of his grand entrance:

Her sound went right through me while I was standing there. It was spectacular to watch her dashing around right beneath me, too.
This Friday, weather permitting, is our last official class. Then it's on to more shadowing and just putting in the hours before I am a full-fledged Zoo Volunteer. Maybe then I'll post less often about the Zoo here and on Facebook: I've noticed that my animal posts in both places have become my least-viewed (I linked to the above video on Facebook and it has received one view so far) so clearly everyone's enthusiasm is waning.
Yeah, like that will stop me. Ha!
And just wait until the penguin chicks are on display. You have been warned.
