Late Afternoon at the Zoo

Sequoia Park Zoo SM15-350

Sometimes the best time to go to Sequoia Park Zoo is in the late afternoon—say, around 3:30 to closing time at 5:00. The Red Pandas are often out and the otters are getting ready the final lap of their day. Here are some images collected in a late afternoon visit. Let’s start with red pandas. Here’s an image of Masala taking a stroll:

And here’s Cini wondering what kind of mischief she can get into:

Cini ended up backing down and running away. You don’t want to mess with the Sumo.
