I was ready to go home after the candy factory visit, but the wee people had their hearts set on going to the Potawatomi  ( Native American word that means  "people of the place of fire") Zoo. I couldn't find anywhere how the zoo got it's name--and I didn't see any people running around on fire--so I can only surmise there was once a Potawatomi population in that area.Moving on...The Potawatomi Zoo is located in South Bend, Indiana (that's north-central, near the Michigan border). It's not a big zoo, but nicely laid out and they did a nice job taking advantage of the space they had. Our Zoological Society membership came in handy, once again, and got us into this zoo free! BONUS!  I took this pic for Peachey. Did you say recently you liked this kind of flower?Camel 1Camel 2Uuuuuuh... camel pushmepullyou?We-de-de-de

OY!Hey! I think this belongs in my mooning blog  Yet another peacockBut the first tortoise we saw... He was mowing the lawn.If you've ready many of my blogs, you know I love dragonflies. I was pretty excited about this. A whooooooooooooooooooooole pond dedicated to them   As my luck would have it though, there wasn't a single one to be seen. Anywhere. I looked, believe me. Girl-child looked too. A pretty damselfly greeted me in the parking lot though, landed on my hand, and apologized for my disappointment  . ( FACTOID: Dragonflies are usually larger and their wings are always extended like a plane. Damsel's fold their wings behind them when they're resting.)Not many zoos have anteaters (I started to type "aunteater" HA!  ). Back when girl-child was about six months, we visited the zoo in Tucson, Arizona. They have a nice anteater. He licked both of us  I added talk bubbles cuz there's something about prairie dogs that needs dialogue.... Yes, that's a hint. Commence dialoguing for the prairie dogs!  Gibbons grooming. Prior to popular belief, they are not picking out bugs. It's a social "thing" where they groom each other by pick out dirt and dry dead skin.Yeeeeeeeeeeeeah... This totem pole was right outside the petting zoo area. I know, I know... Yeah, it is kinda obscene isn't it? Maybe if I took the picture from another angle? Or maybe I should just submit the picture to the Fail Blog...We were done at Potawatomi Zoo in about two hours, ate our picnic lunch, then pointed north for home...
