My World Tuesday: Snoozin'

These guys were ignoring the mobs of kids and kid-like people who were shouting at them at the Bronx Zoo, telling them to wake up and--do what on a hot summer day? Languor was the only logical response to the heat of their day; no need to do or perform. Room service would come, after all. No need to rush about. Though a patch of real estate in a major metropolitan area isn't the right place for these animals, it was working for them. Faced with the choice of hunting down your dinner or waiting for it to arrive, what would you do?

  2. I would love to have a cook. I don't want to be outside any more than I have to. That first picture made me think Awwwwww isn't that sweet. It looks like a polar bear. I thought it might be your dog.

  3. Cats are all the same (whether wild or domestic.;).
    As for me, I think for the food I prefer to have someone to cook for me.;))

  18. I bet when the kids went back to school the next day, during their sharing news, " All the animals were tired and fell asleep."
