More Mantled Guerezas

Image above is really a footnote to this one. Don't like the fence, but its good to see the expressive faces of these incomparable canopy acrobats. [NOTE: Taken in the African Forest exhibit at the Columbus Zoo].



A number of ancient cultures thought that a solar or lunar eclipse was caused by an enormous celestial snake that devoured the moon or sun. Lovely representation of this is hanging from the ceiling of the reptile house at the Columbus Zoo


Polar Bears

The Columbus Zoo has a fantastic exhibit about polar bears (Ursus maritimus). Loved it, but came away with a deep worry about the future of these magnificient creatures. There is a strong link between global warming and the continual loss of polar bear habitat, and the U.S. Geological Survey predicts that two-thirds of the world's polar bears will disappear by 2050.
