San Diego Zoo squirrels

We have an annual membership to the San Diego Zoo and although we don't visit as much as we like, having the membership is great because we don't feel the need to visit every exhibit in order to make up the cost of admission. We can meander in one area and visit other exhibits at another time.

Besides the usual local birds which also visit the zoo freely are the local squirrels. The squirrels visit exhibits and forage food from either the caged animals or park visitors. They are fearless and let you come within a few feet of them before the take off.

With this recent visit, a little dialogue runs in my head about squirrels mocking the caged animals as they run about free around the zoo visiting different animals and stealing their food. Now that I think about it, isn't that an animated movie?
