National Zoo, Washington DC

 After BlogPaws I stayed with a friend in the area. 
He wasn’t willing to share his carrot.
 One of Mr. Panda’s friends, a mongoose.
 Here’s an agouti.
 He’s the size of a small bunny.
 A rock cavy on a rock!
 A naked mole rat in an exhibit designed to draw attention to their tunnel fetish.
 Naked mole rats are colonial animals.
 Meerkats are cute but someday I’ll tell you what a zookeeper told me about them.
 I’ve never had a degu, but I really like them! 
I wonder if they ever come into rescue?
 This is an interactive blog post, so POUND YOUR CHEST!
 Butt. You knew there would be one.
 Chow hound.
 Frog and duckweed.
 I wonder why they have to cage the water lilies from the turtles! 
 Prairie dog!
 Ring-tailed lemurs. Don’t you love their huts?
 “At top speed, a cheetah covers about 23 feet in a single stride.”
The best animal on the trip was my friend’s little dog, Mack.
Say goodbye, Mack!
