    the three new cows arrived at the zoo safe and well. they are reportedly eating well and happy like the sydney animals - though they got a little spooked by all the noises of the city and a rougue possum. there have been no reports yet of how the zoos other two animals responded to the newcomers - the first elephants they will have seen in over 20 years. i am assuming kapah slept (and will continue to sleep) with su in the bull barn to give the newbies a chance to get used to their new home without any additional stress.

    i'm working today (public holiday here in melbourne) so i might give myself a day off tomorrow and go see em. i'll try and find my camera and i'll get some shots of the orangs for everyone too...

    hey, you two could have totally had a chat and not even realised it! did you notice any japanese girls who knew alot about animals glyn?

    it could be really wierd, bumping ito a fellow zoobeater. personally, i don't quite let on the extent of my geekiness. most people don't know that i'm actually thinking about giraffes when i should be thinking about work, or that i get quietly more excited about a new exhibit at the zoo than a movie thats about to come out. i'm a closet geek (its different for those of you that actually have a job in the industry) and if i actually met a zoobeater in person, i may feel exposed!!! :)

    I am well known at work for being zoo mad. What's even better is that one of workmates is vegetarian, very keen on animal rights, dislikes animals in captivity and she can still invite me to her wedding!

    I like the idea of a zoobeat gathering.
