A Trip to the Zoo

Spousie & I went on a date to the Zoo last night. We were planning on leaving when we realized we hadn't seen the bear exhibit yet. We were close to it, so we headed to visit the bears before going home.

Two of the three bears were tussling. Not in a ferocious way, but one had the other pinned down, and it seemed reminicent of my brothers squabbling as I grew up.

I would love to see the hip joint of a bear. Any time I watch bears I am fascinated by how wide their back legs can rotate around. They might have a ball and socket joint like a humans, but a much wider range of motion. Think of all the funky yoga poses I could do with flexible hips like that.

Then again, I probably wouldn't be able to walk upright either!
