I used my last few pictures here (before we reached the zebras).
None of them really turned out, since the animals were all (wisely) in
the shade, and the camera automatically used the light level of the not-shade.
However, thanks to the magic of digital imaging, you can see what they're
supposed to be.

We watched Josie,
a very clever sea-lion performing tricks at the direction of her trainer.
She had a great show full of jumping, swimming, and generally doing sea-lion
things. However, after the show was over and the trainer had left,
she demonstrated another neat trick, entirely on her own. She would
take a mouthful of water, and spit it up into the air, and then catch it
again in her mouth. She did this over and over, as she swam around
the pool. She looked entranced with this game, and didn't seem to
need her trainer or her bucket of fish to have fun.
