Your erratically scheduled fibre arts blogs has been pre-empted so that we can bring you the following information recently learned during a visit to the Calgary Zoo, courtesy of several very young zoo patrons...
There are no caribou in Alberta. These are reindeer. And reindeer do not really fly, 'cuz they couldn't keep them in a zoo if they did.
Wild turkeys look like buzzards, but taste much better.
The more female lions a male lion has, the happier he is. Because the females make all his food for him.
Gorillas are monkeys.
Lemurs are monkeys.
(Insert brother's name here) is also a monkey.
Eagles are NOT raptors. Everyone knows raptors are dinosaurs. That's okay, even zoos can make a mistake.
The elephant god of India is called Ganja.
Peacocks are pretty, but they're mean. Kinda like Aunt Kathy.
And, most importantly...
...T-Rexes are like wasps-they can't see you if you hold still.
No, the zoo isn't just for kids, but I'm pretty sure the kids are the most entertaining critters in any zoo!
