I saw the cow one 1st, but I thought a horse on a Mustang was more appropriate....

Not sure I agree with this, but I found it interesting.
This eight minute song is a beautiful combination of arranged harmonies, rhythms and bass lines and thus helps to slow the heart rate, reduce blood pressure and lower levels of the stress. The song features guitar, piano and electronic samples of natural soundscapes.

So sad.
 
Today we are sad to announce the passing of Ivan and Gaia, our two adult Komodo dragons. Both Ivan and Gaia, who were hatched from the same clutch of eggs, were nearly 20 years old when they passed away from natural causes earlier this month. In zoos Komodo dragons typically live into their late teens. Ivan, our adult male, passed away on September 12, and Gaia, our adult female passed away on September 19. Initial necropsy results showed that both dragons succumbed to multiple age-related conditions, and all indications are that their respective deaths were unrelated.

Losing both dragons a week apart caught all of us off-guard. Both Ivan and Gaia were favorites here at the Zoo among guests and staff. Each had a very distinct personality and will be missed dearly. We invite all of Ivan and Gaia’s fans to share your stories and photos in memory of our wonderful dragons by sharing them with us here. We will be sure to share your messages with our reptile staff who worked closely with Ivan and Gaia every day.

The Phoenix Zoo is proud to contribute to Komodo dragon field conservation, as only 3,000 to 5,000 dragons remain in the wild. The Phoenix Zoo continues to house two younger Komodo dragons, which are currently living in the Bush House on the Children’s Zoo Trail. We expect them to move to the glass-fronted room at Land of the Dragons along the Tropics Trail. Once older, these two younger dragons will be able to use the outdoor yards there.

Post from the President—Baby Rhino Makes His Debut

It wasn’t a sure thing the guest of honor would show, but that didn’t stop friends of the zoo from gathering to welcome the zoo’s newest arrival: a baby black rhinoceros born August 26.

The little one had spent the intervening weeks behind the scenes at the Harris Family Foundation Black Rhinoceros Exhibit, growing well under the watchful eyes of mom Kapuki. He’d met his milestones: standing, walking, nursing. The baby nibbled his first solid food and nosed around a boomer ball purchased by supporters from the zoo’s Wish List.

This off-exhibit privacy provided mom and baby a great opportunity to bond. As the two grew more comfortable with each other, our animal care experts felt confident that it was time for the new arrival to explore his outdoor exhibit. So today he did just that, heading outside for the first time.

The baby was a little tentative when he first emerged, even heading back inside for a moment. But he quickly returned, following mom in exploring the nooks and crannies of their outdoor yard, sniffing new scents and processing this exciting new setting.

Members got an exclusive sneak peek at the baby, a sign of our appreciation for their support. But the little one is now on exhibit for anyone to see, although it’s up to him—and mom, of course—whether they head outside or remain in their comfy indoor den.

As if heading outside weren’t enough, today is also the day we’re sharing the little one’s name: King. It’s a weighty name, appropriate for the newest representative of a species facing a conservation crisis in the wild. But it’s also a tribute to King Harris, who, along with his wife Caryn, is a long-time and generous supporter of Lincoln Park Zoo. The family has been particularly committed to rhino conservation, lending their name to the Harris Family Foundation Black Rhinoceros Exhibit.

So come visit King. Watch the new arrival grow and explore his new home. And if you take any photos, we’d love to see them—post them to our Facebook timeline or share them on Twitter with #BabyRhino and a @lincolnparkzoo mention.

I thought these would be fattening based on all that almond, but I was surprised when I entered into calorie counting site. I chose to substitute the coconut oil for margarine & they were only 85 cal per serving, but without that change they were 110. I used the larger serving size of 18 vs the 24 possible too.

Reminiscent of lemonade, yet milder and less acidic, water kefir or tibicos is a traditional fermented drink. Like most fermented foods and beverages, water kefir is rich in beneficial bacteria and food enzymes.

A very interesting read......I have never been a fan of the telling the children that they are fabulous, when it isn't really true. They have simply done what is expected of them. If my child got an "award" for the messiest desk, then they must have deserved it, and I don't get offended & complain to the school. It is what it is & they can either make a change to make themselves better.....or not.
Lucy is part of Generation Y, the generation born between the late 1970s and the mid 1990s. She's a unique brand of yuppie, one who thinks they are the main character of a very special story. Only issue is this one thing: Lucy's kind of unhappy.

When you're good at something, you want to leverage that. Monsanto's specialty is killing stuff. In the early years, the St. Louis biotech giant helped pioneer such leading chemicals as DDT, PCBs and Agent Orange. Unfor
