An armadillo, a skunk, and a naked mole rat walk into a bar…
The National Zoo’s small mammal house just might have DC’s most eclectic collection of wacky hairstyles and odd visages. Some of its exhibits even feature several species all living together, sort of like the Star Wars cantina. (But with less violence and more fur).
Previously on this blog, I’ve mentioned the terrific perks of joining the Friends of the National Zoo (FONZ) and the FONZ Photo Club. (For example, FONZ members get to meet panda cub Bei Bei before his public debut!) On a recent Saturday, the Photo Club was invited to shoot at the small mammal house before it opened. The staff even took some critters out of their exhibits so we could meet them face to face, making sure we could all get clear shots. Below are photos from this event.
