Museum Day

So yesterday was Museum Day and Scoob and I took advantage of the free admission to go to the Coyote Point Museum. Not only did we get free admission to the museum, but we didn't have to pay the $5 for access to the recreation area either. Woot!

The exhibits in the museum were so-so; mostly informational with a handful of interactive pieces that were perfect for the 5-year-old kids that were there as part of a birthday party.

But the real attractions were outside. The museum has several animals, some local to Coyote Point, on exhibit. I can only assume these animals came here as part of a rescue and rehabilitation program, but were unable to be released for whatever reason. And guess what? I took pictures.


A coyote. It's not called Coyote Point for nothin'.

Badger. So friggin' cute.
I could watch this badger waddle around for hours and be totally entertained.

He's just so pretty (and such a poser) that he gets two pictures.

Peek-a-boo with a Golden Eagle.

Snowy Egret (?) in the sun.

Dunno who this is, but he sure was chatty.

I just liked the way this tangle of evergreen branches looked
silhouetted over the San Francisco Bay with the horizon line in the background.

Grandma, if you're watching, look away now. (Grandma is terrified of snakes.)

San Francisco garter snake

A very colorful San Francisco garter snake.
Unfortunately, the lighting in his case gave everything a yellow tint.

boa constrictor

Up close and personal with a boa constrictor. (I even got to pet it!)
I'll let y'all come up with your own snake petting jokes.
