    I think they’re easy to shoot.

    Was that last one an Okapi? Those are my favorite. Years ago when I was addicted to playing Zoo Tycoon I always had Okapi exhibits. Does Zoo Tycoon even exist anymore??

    When my son was about 3, I took him to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. He kept pointing at the stuffed animals asking, “Is that one alive? Well, is that one alive?” After hearing “No” many times he asked, “Where are the alive animals?” I said, “At the zoo baby.”

      There’s a museum like that in Chicago, where I grew up. My dad told me not long ago that when I was little, I referred to it as “the zoo for dead animals.” Yuck, and true!

    Fun, love those exhibits. Thanks for posting your pics. If you ever get a day or two, head down to the wild animal park north of San Diego-you can see almost all the deer live and in person. (Its where they breed animals for the San Diego Zoo.) Like going on a mini-safari.

    Does that museum have a polar bear diorama?

    I’m reading this with my first coffee on Sunday and, dang if you didn’t make me snort a little with your astute observations on African fauna. Thanks for that.

    I love dioramas. If I was rich, I’d have dioramas in my home.
