Fallon - Day 5
Raffi gave me a play bite today right on the neck, the little vampire. I thought it must have broken the skin but ti hadn´t, hurt like hell actually. My ankles have been playing up a bit lately, I think it´s because of the humidity and the rubbing from my gumboots so I have swapped them for oversized ones. Look out for the clown!!
Today in quarantine went really well actually - and trust it to since I was just telling Tina (Aussie girl, not the monkey) and the rest of the house about the whole weird situation and she was going to have a quiet word to Yanette who looks after the volunteer placings.
I forgot to mention we got 2 new babies yesterday - Floriana who has been in the clinic as she has been unwell, and Natalia who is new to quarantine altogether.
I sneaked up and saw Baloo the bear today and also one of the very tame Puma´s. It was pretty exciting since I don´t get to see many other animals apart from the turtles and coaties from the small animals section. The bear was so cool, he is still a baby but so not what I would expect a bear to look like - he has these really big paws and huge head on a small body. So bizarre but so cool.
We also lost one of our caged monkeys today to monkey park.
