ATLANTApix: Warthog

Warthog at Zoo Atlanta

It's past the time for me to go back to Zoo Atlanta, especially with all the big news recently—a new baby girl gorilla and the expecting tiger! A lot has happened since I was there in October 2010 and there's a lot going on this summer.

The Warthogs in the Warthog habitat may not be the most attractive creatures, according to Cosmopolitan Magazine. OK, I'm just kidding. However, I don't recall ever hearing about a Warthog Show, but this one (photo) looks dapper enough to win Best in Show.

But seriously, the Warthog is an interesting creature. It has evaded becoming endangered through its keen adaptability skills...I know a few humans who could use a lesson or two from this species (Don't we all?).

That's one of the thing I love about Zoo can learn so much about its more than 200 species of animals from around the world. So, go wild and go to the Zoo!

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
