Animal Encounters Part 7

Another blast from the past at the zoo!  Here we've got a close-up of an alligator (or crocodile), and some roly poly seals.  They were not in the same enclosure, they just happen to be on the same page in my sketchbook.  I always have had a soft spot for seals ever since a zoo visit in the first or second grade when I met Corky, a blind seal who could swim around and retrieve balls by feeling around with his whiskers.  I even had a book about him.  Also, my pug often reminds me of a seal pup with her fat round body and her weird seal-like sounds.
