Zoo babies!

The Hogle Zoo has a bundle of new animal babies! Amelia wasted no time introducing herself to the giraffe (who sat quietly in a patch of sun), an elephant (who is not yet big enough to handle the crowds, but we'll meet him soon enough), a snow leopard (who was fluffy and curious), and three darling Amur tigers (who rolled on their backs and batted at leaves, but always stayed close to mom). Amelia would talk to the babies through the fencing and whisper, "Nice to meet you." She even tried to shove her toy tiger through the netting for the snow leopard.

How cute! I miss Hogle Zoo. Are you thinking of visiting good ol' Chaffee Zoo anytime soon?!?
