Cichlids at the Zoo
My son and I drove to San Antonio this weekend to visit the zoo.
I was really amazed when I saw so many dazzling fish in with the hippos.
It was the "African wildlife" portion of the zoo, obviously...
Of course I like hippos as much as the next person, :) but I think I was probably the only person there fascinated by the fish. There were a couple cynics that were saying "poor fish" because of all the hay and grass the hippo tracked into the water, but looking at these fish and the rest of the fish throughout the park, I think they're just fine. The keepers know how to take care of them just like all their animals. You should have seen the size of the koi. Holy jeebus!
