  1. Nice bookmark! And the book looks neat too. I would love to buy the postcard from you for my collection. I was a docent at the Bronx Zoo for ten years and many of us collected old photos from the New York City zoos. You should see the great one I have of a walrus on his hind flippers looking over a wall.

  2. Only if Kid Wolf is loose in the corral!
