We went to "The Counter" for lunch. And sat at a table.
Gavin's 5th Microsoft anniversary.
Scott brought very cute chaperon to keep an eye on us.
Modern zen koan: "What is the sound of 10,000 iPhone cameras clicking?"
He looks like we punted his bug...
Behind the scenes jaguar habitat...
...lots of locks.
Hey, those calendars are made with OUR templates!
Lots of ways to work with the animals without getting eaten. There's a yellow "do not stand beyond this line" line on the floor as well. Apparently sometimes a paw goes fishing around up through the food chute.
Jaguar play toys. The little red ball is a 3 foot buoy, so the little nicks are maybe 6" long and 3/4" deep.
The furry ball isn't actually furry. It's about 18" in diameter and made of hard plastic - like the stuff a plastic kayak is made of? The fur effect was created by teeth and claws playing...
A tiger in another exhibit.
...are pretty darned cute.
As are the penguins.
