Visit the Bronx Zoo's new lion cubs vicariously! The Times' David Rooney writes, "Scoff if you will, but there's something communally soothing about being part of a multicultural throng that oohs and aahs in unison while adorable animals frolic." [NYT]
Zoo babies of any kind make me squeal and giggle. The Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha (a huge, awesome zoo) currently has an adorable 11 month old gorilla. I can't even describe the adorable-ness of watching him clumsily swinging around, putting his toes in his mouth, and trying to play peekaboo with his mom. Mom, on the other hand, looked really bored.
