couaA chip, chipping away of the adoration of our new President can be loudly heard. The revelation that the Obama administration is invoking a continuation of some of the Bush spying policies is causing me much alarm and disappointment.

–  It was about 1500 B.C. when Queen Hatshepsut of Egypt built the first zoo. Many private zoos were kept by rulers in Africa, India, and China between 1,000 and 400 B.C. – and a “school” zoo was built by the Greeks to study animal and plant life.  Modern zoos were not delevoped until the 1400’s when European explorers came to the New World and took exotic animals back home with them. It was then that public display type zoos were born. Here are some of the reasons I love to go to zoos.
