This what a babirusa looks like.

Zoos are for adults, too.

There was a period of time in my life when I was "between families". I was neither someone's child still living at home, nor someone's parent. During that time I visited the Columbus Zoo, St. Louis Zoo, the Boston Zoo, the Bronx Zoo, and the Philadelphia Zoo. There was even a three-month period during which I visited the Philadelphia Zoo every day.

Why, you ask? Well, here are the reasons, and coincidentally, they are the reasons you should visit a zoo often, even if you are an adult with no children.

Zaboomafoo is a sifaka.
