|Adorable, shell shocked baby fox
The animals were delightfully active and it was a good day to be out in peak fall color.
I was particularly obsessed with the baby gray fox above. He looked so new and vulnerable. He eventually curled up and had the pose my cat has when he is settling down with his ears in the owl position.
Our other favorites were the merekats, the lions, the African painted dogs and the Visayan warty pigs.

He was pretty chill and enjoying a spa day in his mud bath...

In other news, I am planning to go to Costa Rica the beginning of January. I am still playing the airfare chess game, so hopefully I can get a good deal. It would better be described as a shell game. I think the artificial intelligence that puts together these flight legs is some kind of sadist. It is a system designed to give you kind of what you are looking for but deliberately not.
I look forward to sketching there!
