This is the first Spring weekend at the Zoo. Many things are different than Winter weeks, and many things are the same. What is the same? Nikita and Berlin are still a great draw - and although we didn't start with the Polar Bears, I couldn't resist stopping for a few minutes on the way out to watch Berlin playing and having her dinner.
One of the exhibits that was open today was the Rhino. Wes and I met a volunteer named Glenn by the Rhinos who was very knowledgable. One fact he shared that that I didn't know about Rhinos: They have a great sense of smell. A sad fact about Rhinos is that like Elephants (who are hunted for their Ivory tusks) Rhinos are hunted for their horns which are considered in some TCM practices to have medicinal benefits. Glenn advised us that research has demonstrated none of the claimed medicinal benefits, but the Rhino is still hunted for it's tusk.
