Recent trip to Phoenix Zoo

Penny and I went to the Phoenix zoo recently. I hadn't been in quite a while. We went to see the Lego sculptures. I put most of those photos on Facebook and so only have one of them on here.
There have always been turtles in the moat where you cross the bridge to the entrance since I was a child.

Penny and sunflowers.

This little guy looked like he was really studying the map.

There were two types of Gila monsters. This was the banded one.

Sonoran toads. We used to see these a lot in the desert edges when we were kids. They were huge.

Well nourished prairie dog.

Coatamundi. Looking at how big it was and the long tail, I think that must have been what I saw the hind end of several years ago in Aravaipa Canyon. I used to think it was the end of a black jaguar, which are super rare. But Coatamundi's are known to live in Aravaipa and the tail looked a lot like what I saw.
