Lakeside 2019, Columbus Zoo Animals and Suzi Rapp

Family night on Wednesday at Lakeside was enjoyable for all--Suzi Rapp from the Columbus Zoo showcased animals and also showed clips from TV shows which feature the work of the zoo personnel, OSU vets, and the animals. Her explanation of the Cheetah conservation work was very interesting. They won't raise a singleton--in their fragile environment with so many predators, it's not worth the investment of the mom's time and energy, so sometimes the zoo receives a rejected baby to raise. Also the Cheetah has a her own yellow Lab to keep her happy and calm(er). She also did an afternoon show.
