It was wonderful to see M’bari today looking handsome as ever at Safari Park. He appears to be enjoying his vacation there while his Zoo exhibit gets some renovation. He seemed right at home and was in good voice, roaring confidently to keep the other males, Izu and Ernest on their toes. They often vocalized back at him from within the bedrooms. I enjoyed meeting Tony, one of his keepers, who welcomed him when he came to Safari Park. They had some history together before M’bari came to the Zoo, and M’bari recognized his old friend, making the transition much easier during this move. I continue to be impressed with the special relationships all the wonderful keepers have with the animals in their care!
