Can someone please tell me a bit more about this event?

It's just a 5K run/walk around the zoo, nothing to do with a live cheetah (if that's what you were wondering).

However, I do think they walk Sarah (the fastest in captivity) around the zoo in front of the crowd.

Does it raise any money for anything?

Nothing special, but if anything they'd be raising money for Africa.

Walter the Warthog | Cincinnati Zoo Blog

I was reading up more about Walter the warthog and this blog says he will not only be in the interactive area in Africa, but will have his own small yard and stall within the new exhibit. He will be moved out of the Children's Zoo in 3 weeks.

The new female black rhino has arrived! Her name is Seyia and you can find a pic of her on Flickr.

I know that Seyia isnt really red, its just mud but she looks so red and her horns look almost white against it. She looks so cool like that. What a way to make her presence know? Go look at the red and white Black Rhino.

I thought Black Rhinos were browsers, not grazers?

On October 17 (2013), National Geographic's head wildlife photogapher Nick Nichols will be giving a talk on elephants at the zoo. He is my all time favorite photographer and I would love to hear him in person some day. My zoo's former curator worked with him once (shooting at another zoo) and said he is an excellent speaker.

I was told today at a wedding that one of the new Japanese macaques escaped from Monkey Island but it was immediately recaptured.
