the post you are now reading is designed to dull your senses to THE TRUTH. do not live the life of the worker bee, the cog, the well-oiled piston in the MACHINE OF DECEIT!

there is a grand CONSPIRACY afoot. you have been taught to believe that you are UNIQUE, one of a kind. THIS IS NOT TRUE. long ago, a cabal of scientists created technologies to ensure that ANYONE'S MIND AND BODY can be duplicated.
human cloning isn't NEAR. it's already HERE. discover the truth at
you are being DECEIVED. break free from the cogs, flee the hive, become A PROPHET OF THE TRUTH!

3 Sumatrans, 2 Bengals, 2 Bengal cubs, 170 miles = 1300 pictures.

The first tiger in this set is the new male at Pt. Defiance Zoo. His name is yet to be chosen, I'm voting for Bali. He got some "enrichment items" for his introduction to the public. They included a "Popsicle" and a pumpkin with some hamburger inside. Sadly when he went to investigate the pumpkin, he knocked it into his pool. He seemed to really enjoy the Popsicle, as he drug it up the hill and hid in the shadows with it. The keepers were saying that they will try and get him and Jaya to eventually breed hopefully.

Jaya is in this set as well. She was being photogenic as usual, if not a little shy, hiding in the back of the 2nd enclosure.

Java was mostly hiding in the shade of a third enclosure. I got only a few pictures of him and only one worth posting.

I won't post the rest of this set just yet, per request.

More fall color

And sometimes the fall color is just everywhere.

I should keep my camera on me at all times. Of course, if I did that it would take me hours to get to my next client appointment every day.

Well, today it was just easier to take pictures in the backyard.

October 17th.

Todays visit was pretty wet. Storm cleared long enough to allow a few pictures.
Almos was in the Phase I enclosure and was cooperative.

The cubs Bhagira and Vitez were brought into the glass enclosed area and were playing and talking to Almos and the Cougar Nashi. Bhagira was running back and forth and Nashi was following him.

October 11th.

I didn't realize any of these would come out. I was lucky enough to get a few pictures of Nashi the Cougar.
It seems that it was a very snoozy day for the tigers Taj and Almos. Nashi was so alert because he had just been given his enrichment treats. You can see some hamburger hidden in the enclosure.

Windoze 7 for my work laptop.

Well, work just gave me a new drive with win7. YAAAWN.
Friends are having win7 rollout parties to get free copies.

Its pretty vista, new significant new gadgets. Seems every so slightly faster.
On the flip side, IE seems ever so less stable. Perhaps it was the AJAX page i was pulling up.

Color me unimpressed.

CMZ 3-Oct-09

The big guys are still being tempted into their new enclosure. Their big tiger ball was moved down the connecting tunnel, which Almos retrieved and brought back to the phase 1 area.

Since Almos and Taj are still happy in their current area, their little friends get to play in the larger phase 2 enclosure.
