    Hey everyone, this is my first post, I just recently found this site :) I am a college student studying psychology and biology. I hope to study/research animal behavior, and am currently working a seasonal position at the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo.

    Welcome to Zoo Chat... Last year visited and photographed the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo. You can view the pictures on my photo website: John Roth... your photo of the De Brazza's Monkeys is a good one, they did not sit still and pose for me the same way... Being that your interest is animal psychology, I urge you read books by Prof. Dr. H. Hediger who was a pioneer in this field, and who also was my mentor in Basel, Switzerland. He influenced me in pursuing a career in the zoo business when he was the director at zoos in Basel and Zurich.
