This is Max and he lives at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne Beach, Florida. Daughter Leslie's boyfriend is one of the animal keepers in the Africa Expedition there and we got an up close and personal visit with Max. We got to clean him with a scrub brush which removes the dried on dirt that he gets from rolling in the wet mud. It's like giving him a massage and he loves it. In the top right portion of the collage Leslie is masaging the inside of his upper leg and believe it or not that part of his skin is quite soft compared to the rest of his thick, tough skin. Click on collage to enlarge and see details.

Mama and baby hidden in the shadows. This was taken from inside my friends (Colorado Springs, Colorado) dining room. I think mama could hear me and that's why she is facing me ... she is also waiting to make sure I don't come out there and try to get her fawn . Many times my friend has seen a deer literaly running through her back yard only to find out the deer was being chased by a bear!

A couple of yard art designs at the Barrier Island Center, Melbourne Beach, Florida part of the Caribbean Conservation Corporation. These are made out of bottle tops....check out the sea turtles eyes, pretty clever I'd say. That one was made by my daughter and the star fish below by one of the kids during sea turtle day camp.
Frito is a new addition to our family. Our daughter was relocating to San Antonio from the east coast of Florida right after Christmas and didn't have an apartment secured when we left (I helped she and her boyfriend drive out). My husband and I said we would love to have Frito .... he is a great bird .... daughter even "potty trained" him. When he is out walking around or on our shoulder for about an hour and hasn't gone potty I put him back in his cage and say "duty Frito duty" and sure enough he goes potty. I praise him and back on my/our shoulder he goes. He likes everybody but especially the ladies!!
