|THE WOLF AND THE RABBIT|
While hanging out at the elephant cage, an interesting thing happened. The keepers were hosing down one of the elephants and the crowd was gathered. Next thing I know -- I had company! I sat down where I stood and said quietly, "Just sit still - you will be ok here next to me."
He made himself comfortable and no one was the wiser. Except my daughter who said, "Mom is 'The Bunny Whisperer.'"
He was a young Eastern Cottontail. In spite of all the squeeling children he sat and ate the brush right next to me. When he saw fit, he dashed away. And then followed us. He hopped through the Lion's area as well! Stopped, looked around and gallivanted away. Danged Teenagers ... they are fearless.
What have we learned today?
That I can go to a zoo with a plethora of beasts from all over the globe - but nothing excited me as much as this little Eastern Cottontail
My new friend.
