work trip

/ gecko - can't remember what kind /
a couple weekends ago, angela (the other te manawa animal keeper) and i head over to mt bruce to go have a look at some of their animal enclosures. in the near future, we're hoping to upgrade the former frog enclosure to contain both frogs and geckoes, but we wanted to see how some well-established institutions created and maintained their enclosures.

/ kiwi egg ready to hatch /
we not only got to see the geckoes, we also went to see the kiwi chicks being fed and one chick had just externally pipped and was going to hatch any minute. i have to say i was pretty impressed by the recent upgrades, the place looked really great.
