Sarah & S*xy on Sunday

Whoo hoo! Our very own Cincinnati Zoo, aka the Sexiest Zoo in America (so named because of its amazingly successful breeding program) is also home to Sarah, the fastest mammel on earth.

Sarah covered 100 meters in 6.16 seconds and 6.13 beating the former record by THREE WHOLE SECONDS!

Go here and here to read the background ofthese races & view the amazing runnung footage. The long You Tube version (second video on the first link) and on the zoo's site are the best

We also join the zoo in mourning Emi, the rare Sumatran Rhino who recently passed away. She & her "little ones" were always one of my bean's favorite animals to visit. Please read about this amazing girl here.

BTW, it is my beans 6th wedding anniversary!

It's nice to read about a good zoo. The zoo in our city has been getting a lot of attention lately for being not so good (it's not horrible, but people want a sick elephant out). Anyway, cheetahs are cool and Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary Amy and Greg!
We have the Minnesota Zoo, but mama likes the smaller one called Como Zoo, I think because she likes the flower conservatory next door to it.
If you know anyone who can help with our current blog problems, please let us know.

We watched video of Sarah the other day. Whatever was she chasing?

Sorry about the rhino. Sounds like she was a big help to the zoo's breeding program.

Sarah is awesome! We watched her on the internets... I reckon I could give her a run for her money though ;)

Happy anniversary to your beans! Be nice to them today... maybe give Bendrix the day off?

Happy Anniversary, Humans!

Wow, that's a very fast cat! I thought I was fast running down the hall!

Thanks for coming to our party! Hope you enjoyed playing with the rats! They had fun (though they're not sure they should play with Bendrix anymore after what he and PersePHONY did!)!

We think we're going to name the info-ferrets Frick and Frack.

Happy 6th Anniversary (a little late) to your humans Mr. Hendrix! Please give them our congratulations!!

Mom just loves cheetahs. It must be nice to have a good zoo nearby. The one here is very very bad.
