El Parque Zoologico

I went to the Milwaukee County Zoo today with my brother and his wife. It was free day, which means it was packed with people. We did get to see a few animals as well. It was pretty much nap time. Two North American River Otters were chillaxing for our viewing pleasure.

There was some serious snuggling between these two and what looked like grooming, then scruff-biting; we thought we were going to witness some adult otter behavior there for a while. (And you know what that means: cute baby otters!!) At least, I am assuming that they were a breeding pair.Kind of weird to think that these creatures once lived right here before people urbanized the whole area. We go to see them held hostage, in the same place they used to frolic.
