One of the most amazing experiences of my life today. I was permitted to take saliva samples from the #LouisvilleZoo for research I am doing at the KSP Forensic Laboratories. I met all four of our #orangutans. The staff at the zoo were so kind and patient with both me and the orangs. I even got to give Teak some “high value” foods as a reward for his cooperation (upper photo). I am grateful for the chance to have met these special creatures. (Taken with Instagram)

Went to the Louisville Zoo back in October and polar bear was showing off for the crowd by repeatedly diving into the water and swimming right up to the viewing window. I was lucky enough to be right in front for this photo. #polarbear #louisvillezoo
