Here are some photos from our trip to the Zoo this morning. It was a cloudy, cool day, and not too many other people were competing for the animals’ attention. We were surprised to see some improvements since our last visit to the bird flight cage, as well as to a bear exhibit and a few other things.
I should note the first photo shows what used to be a pay phone. Santa Cruz was once known for these big colorful animal sculptures that housed pay phones, placed throughout the city. In the age of the cell phone, these relics are dying out. The Zoo has apparently repurposed two of them, filling in the chest cavities where the phones would have been.
