After school on Monday Marla invited me to come to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
We explored for a few hours, focusing on areas we don't usually go to, like the entire African Loop.
This metal sculpture looks like the work of Ricardo Breceda (the artist who made the Anza Borrego sculptures) but I could not verify this.
The Northern ground hornbill is one of the strangest birds I have ever seen. The casque on their bill is made of keratin and is used to amplify their vocalizations.
Super fun, Mar! Thanks for the invite.
