today's featured pumpkin treats were scheduled for the chimps, meerkats and spectacle bears. since i saw the chimps on wed at the preview, i went late and got there for the meerkats. i haven't done a post on these little guys yet, so i'll post alittle info on them here. they live in the children's along side their neighbors the prairie dogs. at past boo events, the meerkats are always fun to watch get their treats, pumpkins filled with meal worms! yum! our group of meerkats (called a mob) consists of three females and three males. the girls names are, victoria, ness, and okeechobee. the boys names are, saro, huron, and bailko. they are all named after rivers. ... i was disappointed when i got the schedule for this years event and saw that many animals (tigers, polars, lemurs, gorillas,) who usually get treats would not be, but i also thought maybe some might still even if they weren't listed and i was right. while wandering around visiting all the friends, i caught this female patas enjoying her pumpkin. the tamarins had treats too and i heard there was pumpkin remnants at gorilla world. as well when i left i saw displays at the lemurs, so maybe tomorrow for them? the lions will get their halloween treats tomorrow but had sheep legs today! its a bit too much nature for me, but they seemed to really dig them, especially kimani who grabbed hers and headed to the bushes with it. ... before wishbone and annie (spectacle bears) came out, it seemed the gulls were stealing all their treats ;( , but thankfully when they got at em, there were still enough fruits and veggies for them! i love when i get snaps of wishbone with his tongue out! do you see his tongue in the pumpkin? these two are so precious.
