    Yes, Halloween is over.  But, beneath the Henry Doorly Zoo’s Desert Dome, the spirit of the holiday lingers on.  Down into the darkness, that is the realm of the “Creatures of the Night”, you will enter a world of darkness alive.   Here you will walk into dark and deep reddened caverns, where creatures fly close and nearby.   How close is up to you.  Just do not poke your fingers through the netting.  They seem to be attracted to the movement!

Red glow in the darkness.

Perhaps the darkness hides more than you think. Such as this family of bats.


  Sorry to say that I have not been to the Zoo within the last couple months.  Spring cleaning, lawn preparation, and a new deck project, have really been taking up too much time.  I am hoping to perhaps get away within the next weekend or two for a visit to Henry Doorly.  

   What with spring ending and summer warming up, it is a perfect time to take a walk around the Zoo.  All the animals will be outdoors this time of year, and perhaps we will get a chance to spot a few new additions at the Zoo.  It is after all, Spring / Summer time and I am sure we are bound to spot at least a couple new baby animals here or there. 

   So for some, it’s Spring fever time in the midlands.  For me, I think it is more like Zoo fever time, as the last time we visited, it was just after the snow had melted!

   See you at the Henry Doorly Zoo!
