Zoo Update

I had a newsletter from the John Aspinall Foundation, the organisation that runs two zoos in Kent - Howletts and Port Lympne. (Don't get your lips in a tangle, it's pronounced "Lim".) John Aspinall ran casinos, and was a friend of the nanny-murdering disappearing peer Lord Lucan. He used the money those with more of the stuff than sense lost to him, and invested it in saving species. Aspinall died a few years ago of skin cancer. I donate a sum monthly to help the cause.

Anyway, the newsletter said that in April two Siberian Tiger cubs were born at Port Lympne.

Guess where I'm going on Monday!


Meanwhile, I forgot to include one little creature in my slideshow the other day. Please be upstanding for this sweet animal the size of a cat - the fennec fox.



I didn't manage to get a picture of the Mouse Deer, but what a fragile-legged little thing that was. I strongly encourage googling it so you can go "Aaaah!"
