I've been at the Museum sooooo long - longer than many of our interns have been alive. I do a little bit of everything as part of my job: care for the animals, work with the keepers and other staff, spend time with guests. Lucky me!
I spend a lot of time behind-the-scenes, or here after hours, but if you really want to see me, you'll have to sign-up for a behind-the-scenes program.

Gus on the scale…

September 16th, 2013

Remember my drawing of Gus? Aaron’s? 

Here’s the real thing: this is what Gus looks like on the scale:

Doodling

June 24th, 2013

As you know, I cannot draw. Last week’s Museum’s bi-weekly operations meeting was longer than usual. This is a meeting of staff across all the different departments at the Museum to discuss issues or events that might affect Museum operations. I started to doodle. This is what my doodle looked like:

My random doodle… it seemed to be “circles” today.

 

I was sitting next to Wendy. This is what her doodle looked like:

Wendy’s doodle.

 

Here’s the photo of the folks she was doodling (Sorry Darcy, you missed the photo op)

Mike K, Uli, and Mike W

  1. Your doodling is very molecular, Sherry – surely the doodle of a true scientist!

    I think a Thursday animal dept meeting should have a doodle by Wendy

What was happening there?

June 3rd, 2013

I recently posted a drawing and asked you to tell me what was happening here.

original drawing

Many of you commented, but no one was exactly right. The above drawing was indeed of a bear- Gus to be specific. The round dot on his back was his puff of matted hair. I did not think the puff was drawn accurately (unlike the rest of the drawing) so I added the “dart”, “spike-like” projection out of the back.  There is no way I could have drawn this- my artistic skills are poor at best. I do mostly-fine drawing names, and only moderately okay drawing stick-people. This drawing was done by Aaron.

Here’s how I would have drawn the above:

Sherry’s version

The drawing was made so we could visually review who would be standing where during the bears’ physicals. (It was also made for the enjoyment factor because everyone knows I like a good drawing). Positioning is critical during any procedures with dangerous animals, even when they are behind bars. Jessi is the primary trainer for the bears, so she will be there. Dr. Vanderford will be there, with Katy of course doing the physical.

We’ll let you know how the physicals turn out- maybe Aaron will draw another picture!

What’s Happening Here

May 30th, 2013

It’s another post with a drawing:

So,

#1- Who drew the picture

#2- What animal is drawn (and how do you know… or why did you guess…)

#3- What’s happening

Join the conversation:

  1. It’s got to be a bear, even though the head looks more like an alpaca – I can tell by the big paws and tiny tail. And it looks like a tranquilizer dart on its back. Not sure about the small black elliptical mark right next to the dart…hope it’s not a tick…

  2. Director Comment :

    WENDY- who drew the picture?

    to be fair: I drew the “dart” in the animal’s back because I thought the small black dot was drawn inaccurately.
    Regardless, neither represent a ‘dart’ or a ‘tick’

  3. First guess was alpaca and you were going to look at Equinox’s grey spot on her back. But you have Jessi here who isn’t a farmyard keeper and Dr.V who I think does the bear care. So maybe bears and you are gang hem acupuncture ;)

  4. * giving them.

  5. Thought it was a horse at first, but with Jessi’s name there it’s got to be a bear. Sherry drew it, I think it’s of Gus and that slash mark is his dread?
    I already know what’s happening from ETW meetings, so I won’t guess that part

QuikPost: quiz and so much more.

March 12th, 2012

At the end of the day on Thursday I was discussing a leaking pipe with some keepers and drawing on the board to try to get a visual. Let’s just say my drawing skills are poor-at-best. One of the keepers then says to me can you draw us walking out the door and going home.

Below is my drawing of the three keepers heading home. Do you want to guess which three they are (in order, left to right?)  (this drawing is not edited nor touched up, as tempting as it was to re-draw or make changes, no such actions occurred).

  1. I’m guessing Kent, Kimberly and Aaron but I didn’t think they all lived together and I’m pretty sure none of them live in a cardboard box.

  2. I’m going with Kent, Kimberly, and Marilyn.

  3. I’m guessing Kent (hat), Kimberly (shortest of the three, with long flowing hair), and Marilyn (tall with a little bit of hair). Not sure if those circles around the eyes are glasses, but that qualifies them too, if those circles are indeed glasses.

  4. I agree with Sarah and Ranger Greg

  5. Well I know it’s not me or Jill, since we were closing that day and got to see the picture when we came back in from Explore the Wild! :)

  6. Director Comment :

    Yes Greg, those circles are glasses.
    Yes Leslie, the keepers live in cardboard boxes: Kent, Kimberly, and Marilyn share one!

  7. Why do they live in cardboard? I thought they all lived in houses!!:)
