    Thank you!

    I didn't realise Indianapolis has such a wealth of marine mammals despite its 'zoo' status :)
    It was very useful.

    The Grey Seals are new the zoo, there is two Ziggy and Scooter. The California Sea Lions once coexisted with Harbor Seals a few years ago. I will actually be visiting it tomorrow.

    Just now. I have made many visits to the Indianapolis Zoo. MISTery Park and Extreme Snakes are both new exhibits at the zoo.

    Tomorrow I will be visiting the Indianapolis Zoo and I will get pictures of each exhibit in the zoo. Tomorrow it's supposed to be sunny and 82 so it will be nice to walk around the zoo. I will probably get a better camera for Christmas this year.

    Wait what?
    This macaque is seen as a marine mammal?

    Technically yes, because these types of macaques live in Southeast Asia but they spread to the Timor Islands and they are also really good swimmers.

    I think the choice of the long-tailed macaque as a marine mammal is interesting. I suppose the same also applies to the pygmy three-toed sloth.

    They are only found naturally as far east as Bali (i.e. on the continental islands of the Sundas). Everywhere past Bali they were introduced by people.

    They are very good swimmers, and do swim in saltwater (e.g. in mangroves), but saying that makes them a marine mammal is like saying a dog is a marine mammal because if you take it to the beach it will go swimming in the ocean.

    They macaques are in a former polar bear exhibit which is why they are grouped with the marine mammal exhibits.
