Run for the Zoo…and walk with us too!

Last week I got the pleasure of shooting some promo’s to promote the Run for the Zoo, Presented by Presbyterian & NM BioPark Society. It is a fundraising event benefiting the ABQ BioPark Zoo, Aquarium, Botanic Garden & Tingley Beach. I found out it is the largest running event in New Mexico!

Part of my task was to show off some of the amazing species of animals we are privileged to have here at ABQ Biopark Zoo. Some of which were extremely friendly. I think I’ve found some new best friends.

Including the extremely cute marsupial from down under. He was extremely friendly and loved to jump around.

Like I said, we got pretty close, pretty fast. As I always say… I love my job. I never thought I would be this close to a Kangaroo in my life. But I must say I have a new found understanding of Kangaroos.

And then their were the amazingly beautiful and graceful Giraffe’s. They too were a sight to see.

This guy was not too shy to ask for a second serving of greens.

And then I met Chopper, the baby rhino. I couldnt get in his cage, being that Rhino’s are a wild animal with a horn and all… But I did get a pretty good view.

Lastly, I got to lay around with this larger than life lioness just to live on the edge. She was cool too, I was trying to get her to tell me who turned her to gold…
