I went to the zoo, and what did I see?
An fantastic takin looking at me ...
The St. Louis Zoo is home to a family of endangered takin from western China. These incredible animals remind me of musk oxen, bison, and even the strange Asian saiga antelope (similar arching nose), but they are unquestionably unique. I implored my daughter, who is fascinated with all things Chinese, to "grow up, move to China, and save the wild takin."
That's not too much to ask, is it?
