It was a cool, windy, rainy day and I somehow managed to spend a lot of it outside. I went for a run in the morning, to the zoo in the afternoon, and on an outdoor excursion with Spencer (I'll write about that another day).
I hadn't been to the zoo for a couple of years, but this week I went twice. My nephew's friend is doing a university research project and needed volunteers. He's doing research on how the lions react to strollers, and I would say they react pretty strongly. The moment the lion could hear the stroller come around the corner, he jumped up and ran towards it. When I stopped by the plexiglass windows, he stood on his hind legs and pawed at the glass the whole time. Sometimes Neve was in the stroller (she was a bit big, but we squeezed her in), sometimes I pushed an empty stroller, and sometimes we went without the stroller. The lion couldn't care less about me and Neve, but the seal-shaped stroller apparently looked delicious to him.
It was pretty fun; if you want to see more, here's a sort of blurry 10-second video I took.
