AWW Mondays: Black Bear and More

I'm watching you . . . see my long sharp claws?

This black bear was resting when I saw him at the Cleveland Zoo last Thursday when we went to the special Breakfast With the Animals zookeeper event. I thought he was verycute. On our arrival, we had a breakfast of yogurt, a muffin, fruit and water and got to pet the possum and armadillo that one of the volunteers brought over. I took a picture of the possum but thought I already had a picture of an armadillo but later found out I didn't. The armadillo's shell was flexible and had hairs sticky out of it. It was a hairy armadillo and very cute. It felt like petting bumpy rock.

I grow thick fur when it's cold.

I look kind of like a donkey.

There was a new animal that we hadn't seen before up in the Northern Trek called a Persian Onager that was very nice. It was all the way on the other side of the exhibit but came over for me to get a good picture of it.

Be sure to stop by to see the pet Blogville Olympic games today

I mostly view wildlife in the wild, in my backyard, in my house (!!), or in the Adirondacks which is not far from my home. I do not admire wildlife nearly as much as those who view the critters from a zoo cage. I find them pesky, dangerous, and very irritating!

Wonderful pic! He certainly looks relaxed. Wonder if he's contemplating the people who are looking at him.

That bear is very cute! We haven't seen a Persian Onager before either.
