St Louis Zoo takin and penguins

This odd-looking but handsome creature is a takin, a relative of goats and sheep that is native to the Himalayas.

When I passed through the nicely refrigerated penguin building, one of my zookeeper conference colleagues was getting an up close and personal encounter!

We have African Penguins here. They don't have to have the temperature adjustment. I love Penguins!

Wonderful pics! The takin looks quite fetching.
And penguins are full of win!
