Looking your best is important, especially if you have company visiting you all day. Take these two leopards for instance. People come and go all day long and they want to put on a good show.
For most of my zoo trips this year, these guys have been hiding somewhere and I was starting to believe they didn’t exist. But last week they were out, front and center; at least for a little while. It was fun watching one groom the other until he went back up on the rocks, out of sight.
