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!

Wolf burying food

September 16th, 2014

I love this video! The female wolf is burying food. She seems to be  playing with the male, the male “responds” to her… Thanks Katy for having your camera with you!

    The best part is when he vomits up something and she starts to lick it!!! So gross!!! (I don’t go anywhere without my camera just for these gross moments!)

More drawings from Sherry

September 10th, 2014

Blog readers know that I am artistically challenged. (click here, or here to see some other wonderful drawings of mine). This drawing  (it’s a glove, or a hand) went up on the board a few months ago. I asked Volunteer Dan to go through our work glove box. I wanted him to make pairs, as well as get rid of any gloves that he deemed unusable. (too holey, too stiff, too…)

Kent and Elaina thought the number of gloves that would get thrown out would be equal to the number of gloves kept. Autumn thought we would throw out the same number that we kept. Aaron, Katy, Sarah and Annie thought we would throw out less than we kept. And, finally, Jill found the question to stressful and refused to play!

What do you do at 10:30 on Thursdays?

August 26th, 2014

I was looking at a Museum planning calendar and came across what happens for the “important people” Thursdays at 10:30. What are you doing at 10:30 on Thursdays?

  1. which bear is in charge of the bear yard now that ursula is gone? Is it Mimi because she is the oldest? Or is it Gus because he is the biggest.

    Posted by margie
  2. Keeper Comment :

    Margie, It really depends on the day. They are still figuring out their order. Yona still tests every bear. If you want a loosely based answer, I would say Gus.

    Posted by Jill Brown
  3. Which bear is in charge when the watermelons get thrown in…?

    Posted by djcronce
  4. Keeper Comment :

    When we throw in watermelon we throw in enough for all 4 bears so we can prevent any arguments from happening.

Aaron and Katy

August 8th, 2014

Sometimes I find our two Lead Keepers in serious discussion. Other times I find them like so:

I get a smile from Katy and Aaron- Success!

I was cleaning up the hall and found a big pad of paper. Katy decided to hang it on the wall and play hangman. Aaron filled it in with his answer. (It was not the puzzle Katy had in mind).

2014 Red Wolf SSP meeting

August 2nd, 2014
Erik from Wolf Haven International made this during dinner at the 2013 SSP meeting. I was so glad he shared it with us !

Erik from Wolf Haven International made this during dinner at the 2013 SSP meeting. I was so glad he shared it with us !

Besides picking up lemurs last week in Ohio, I also had the Red Wolf SSP planning meeting. Akron Zoo was a wonderful host, and a beautiful Zoo. We talked about so many things that my head is still spinning: information about captive wolves, wild wolves, veterinary research, enrichment, capture and restraint, and so much more. We spent one whole day discussing husbandry issues, such as enrichment and diets. We also saw several videos on different ways to “catch-up” wolves (Hence Erik’s photo). It’s really helpful for the group to see how other institutions do “things” so we can share, learn, and adapt.

I spent most of the three days sitting around a table. Will Waddell brought his important paperwork in the following folders:

We did get a chance to wander around, as well as go behind the scenes. I was busy taking photos of dry erase boards, signs, fences, recycling bins, windows, locks,  and such.  I don’t have animal photos to share with you, but rather the incredibly interesting photos to follow:

Everyone has issues with people sitting on fences. This is what Akron did in one of their exhibit areas to prevent folks from sitting on top.

And let’s not forget the different charts and notes that everyone seems to post:

Not exactly sure yet what wolves we will have at the Museum next year, but some possibilities were identified and more news will be shared in the fall.

We have 5 new ring-tailed lemurs residing behind the scenes.We’ll introduce you to them over the blog in the next few weeks and you’ll be able to see them at the lemur exhibit indoor viewing area soon after that. For now,  photos of them in the van  (I drove them here from the Toledo Zoo on Saturday).
