We all know it’s you behind that fake moustache.
This baby orangutan is Pongo. Pongo is looking at you with his beeg Pongo eyes!
This is Pongo looking lovingly at his mother, with his beeg Pongo smile!
Pongo, and his mother, Blaze, have such a story. (keep those shields up!)
Due to some complications at birth, it took Pongo and his Mom many months to recover and become fully reunited.
And now they are inseparabuls.
With help from many caretakers at Zoo Atlanta working tirelessly around the clock to nurture mother and child back to health and to bond their relationship, this story has a successful, happy ending for all.
Oh and one last thing, Sun., Jan. 12, was Pongo’s first birthday.
Happy Birthday, Pongo!
It’s so cold, the artists formerly known as Snowy Owls have confirmed they now want to be known as I Wanna Go To Miami Owls.
An invasion of Snowy Owls, the magically beautiful bird of the Arctic (and Harry Potter), has been reported this winter across the Midwest, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. One has made it all the way to Little Talbot Island, near Jax, Florida! That is a real Snow Bird invasion.

It’s so cold, even polar bears can’t handle the polar vortex! Multiple news sources reporting from zoos across the country that polar bears are curling up and staying inside
with their snuggie and a cup of cocoa in front of the fire !

Chiidax, the baby fur seal can tell you, it’s all about the Aleuts getting you through
to the ground crew who feed you fish stew
while FedEx delivers you a thousand miles or two
to rendezvous with friends anew; other fur seal rescues Kit, Flaherty and Lou. Whew!
On the plains and mountains of Peru, there you will find Viscacha. My cousin is the Chinchilla, but he has the ears that are stumpy, not tall and proud like Viscacha. But neither is Viscacha the bunny rabbit, for their tails are like, how you say, the puff powder, not long and curly like Viscacha.
When Viscacha is threatened, I emit a fearsome roar!
There are some who say that to sniff the fur of Viscacha produces the visions of beauty in the mind. But this is the nonsense.
