Okie everyone, here's some pics of the animals I used to work with when I was a Zookeeper a couple years back:
This is Al, our blind Albino Racoon. He was such a sweetie!
These are some pics of our Grivet troop, mostly of the kids:
These are our two oldest Capuchin monkies, Jacko - who's 42 years old, and Petey (a girl - her original owners thought she was a guy) who is 43:
This is Freddie, our Sanford's Brown Lemure, and he loves to cuddle (except with cameras):
And here's Loppy a European Brown Bear, sadly we lost him to a unforseen growth in his spine:
And finally here's Tiki, our bitchy female Coatis Mundi:
That's all I have at the moment, if I find more I'll scan them and put them up. If you have any questions about 'em, feel free to ask! =^.^=

You were a Zookeeper? Cool!
These animals look so cute! I need to get my nose in a zoo again...
I could take my little 8-year-old brother with me. He has never been to a zoo yet, I believe. :shock: I love animals. I have this weird hamster at home. Unbelievable how a creature that size can be such a sweetie and a weirdo at the same time!

Your Weird Hamster reminds me of something that happened to me once, Angel...
I had two Gerbils once. Their names were Chubby and Greg. I got them in first grade, they were very nice Gerbils. But one day I noticed that Chubby kept jumping on Greg in a most peculiar fashion. Later Greg gave birth to a bunch of little Gregs...
And that's the story of how Greg became Mary... :shock: :wink:
But yes, Zoos are fun to go to, however I usually feel bad for the animals being so "enclosed", however at the Zoo I worked at I assure you the animals were in charge as they all were the most spoiled rotten bunch of animals you ever did see. And it should be that way. Really being a Zookeeper is nothing more than being a glorified janitor as my Boss at the Zoo used to say. He was so right, but it was the best job I've ever had.
