San Francisco Zoo

Went to the San Francisco Zoo on Saturday April 28th with my friend Ching-Yu from Figurative Concepts class and had a grand time drawing the animals.

My personal favorites are the anteaters. Found out that the zoo owns three - a momma, a poppa and a baby almost the size of the momma.

Momma taking a stroll.

I saw the momma anteater bathe - something I had never seen before in all the years that I have visited zoos. Didn't even know they liked the water. She brushed her tail with her snout like a comb.

Poppa pacing around in his own enclosure. The area the Momma and Baby have is much nicer. It's too bad he does not have an enclosure that is as nice. His is all concrete.

I'm a little jealous you got to see the anteater go for a swim! That is positively adorable in every way.

Lots of nice drawings here :)! I like how many drawings you do for each animal. You did a good job capturing the rhea!
