This past weekend Malcolm and I joined our friends Amber and Caroline for a trip to the Little Rock zoo. Benjamin and I took him back in June, but he wasn't as engaged with the world around him yet; this time, he was all eyes as he observed everything.
Granted, he was rather more interested in the ball in the tiger enclosure than the tiger itself, but he did see the big kitty.
According to the zoo's website, these two elephants are new arrivals - retired Ringling Brothers circus elephants and one is 38 and the other 44. Apparently, the Little Rock zoo has a good record of caring for geriatric elephants; the other elephant is 53.

It was a lovely day for the zoo - sunny but not too warm. Many of the animals were out enjoying the weather too.
The jaguars and cheetahs were certainly enjoying the sun.
The playground was overrun with children, most much older than Malcolm and Caroline, but Malcolm did find this set of drums pretty fun.
It was only a couple of days after Halloween, and the zoo hadn't removed all the decorations from their Boo at the Zoo, so Malcolm spent a lot of time pointing out the pumpkins and other decorations.
