Cat mom and babies

Cat baby with tail

Bonobo Lexi getting her teeth brushed Jax Zoo

I was invited "back stage" at the Jacksonville, Florida Zoo, to photograph the "Keepers" training the animals. I was shocked to see this keeper pull tooth paste and a tooth brush out of her gear and then brush Lexi's teeth. Lexi seems to like it. I WISH I could get Dentists to consider using these pictures.

Bonobos do take care of their teeth

Two Three year olds

In my photographic work to get the word out for most of us that Bonobos actually DO exist I got this image of VIC. The boy in red's father told me he brought his son every week to visit Vic. Vic is behind glass. They are both three years old. They were at the Cincinnati Zoo.
