Like most people, zoo's have fascinated me from as far back as I can remember.
Some were big and some were as small as the monkeys and lion at Madonna Inn. Some were new, like the Houston zoo in 1965. Some were old and run down, like the Los Angeles zoo in 1956 or the New Orleans zoo in 1968. The Oakland zoo was kind of pathetic in 1970 compared to the one in San Francisco, but they all were interesting and educational. What was really nice, was they were free.

Scientists have found more than 200 new species of frogs in Madagascar but conservation of the Indian Ocean island's unique wildlife is hurt, a study shows.(Xinhua/Reuters Photo)

I figured that some monitors might already have dust and flyspecks, so I made an illustration to point out the correct speck that is the Hubble and Atlantis.
Endangered Species Day
Today is Endangered Species Day.
There are still some people who can't see that we humans have taken more than our share of our planets resources. They begrudge the fact that they are being advised to cut back on cutting down the forests or drilling more holes in the earth. Only 22 newspapers reported that today is Endangered Species Day.
