John Deere that is! In order to properly maintain the animals in our care we need to periodically “deep clean” their homes.  Here is a crew from the Monroe County Parks Department cleaning and regrading the rhino yard.

This happens about twice a year, when we get in the yard and move the soil that has washed down into the pool and moat back up on top of the hill. Once complete and the boys are let back out, they love to explore all the new textures and smells.

You know it is hot when even those animals whose natural range includes very hot temperatures, like our African elephants, Genny C and Lilac, are looking for ways to cool off.

Watch Genny C and Lilac play in the sprinkler here.
