So, I promised Ray an adventure on Saturday. Yes, we are housebound in TX. However, there is virtual excitement. Check out the Ape Cam at the San Diego Zoo.
We killed thirty minutes or so clicking between cameras. No lions or tigers in view - my pic above is from the Fort Worth Zoo a few years ago. The elephant cam (yes - it's E day in A to Z blogging) yielded some elephants on the move. That was fun. But the best is always the Ape Cam and Orangutans did not disappoint. Fun to watch them swing in their play area. They munched on bananas, messed with each other, and sat and pondered the world.
And just think - they are accustomed to watching people as much as we are used to watching them. Think of the amount of tourists who flow through their area - talking, pointing, smiling, waving, etc.
These are smart creatures - do they miss us as much as we miss them?
I fancy that they are a tad lonely - no interaction. No tourists to turn their backs to, or to perform - do outrageous acrobatics. I should think some scientist is doing a study right now - how does Covid-19 affect our animal friends at the zoo.
Something to think about as you wander from room to room in your home, eating from a bag of cheetos, or a healthy banana.
Happy Quarantine Monday, my friends.
