  • Reindeer Pedicure

    +

    It’s a little nuts at the zoo: Wruwallin the Koala has lost her contact lens, Kenny the Rhino has lost his appetite, and Bob the trickster monkey has lost his mojo. What’s a zookeeper to do? Maybe relax by giving a soothing pedicure to three bucking reindeer. Better yet, let’s just take the afternoon off and go for a peaceful stroll with a softhearted vulture. It all actually happens today on Secrets of the Zoo.
