Big Cat Updates
Ginger Serval has been doing very well but today she is giving the keeper trouble taking her meds. One of the antibiotics she is on is Batril and she recognizes it in whatever they hide it in. Carole explains more in the "Zucari Goes on FunCation" video below.
The second Augmented Reality Zoo is being set up on Brower Westfield Mall Plantation, Florida. Carole, Jamie, and Victor have been working on that. They gave us a great space right by their food court.
