After several years of drought, and thoughtfully hand-watering Zoo plants and maintaining animal water ponds at low levels, El Nino has greened-up California and piled up snow that will hopefully fill up dams and aquifers. The animals seem stoic and apparently have planned ahead to grow thick warm coats of fur. When summer comes, the fur-shedding process begins and since it’s a rare wild animal that permits brushing, foxes and coyotes will look a little unkempt for awhile.
