So, as probably quite a few people here, I've pretty much always been a "ghost" on this site, reading the latest on local zoos and seeing what's up in the zoo world, as well as researching different collections. My hobbies all revolve around animals and zoos - I've recently gotten into wildlife art (I've always done art, but never been a true artist) and I can't wait to really be successful in it. One of my favourite things to do is keeping a list of animals I've seen (that is what a life-list is, right?). I've currently got mammals "completed" (everything's listed, but I can always see more of course) and I've started the bird list. Anyway, before I ramble on I just wanted to give a short story of who I am, and to say that I'm glad to finally be on, hahahaha.
