Before he started working at the zoo, Des spent more than a decade shoeing show horses as a full-time farrier. It’s a skill that comes in handy with the zoo’s wild horses. The trick is in getting the vets to sedate the horse enough for it to be cooperative, but not so much that it can’t stay on its feet. Even when it goes well, it’s really tough work.

Camel keeper Dan Ross knows there’s nothing better at the end of a long day than a nice warm shower. He figures his favorite camel, Sally, might appreciate the same thing. And the shampoo they’ll use will help keep the flies away.

After more than a week of thrice-daily checking, the Malayan River Turtle eggs finally hatch. If they are in good shape, it will be the first time a Canadian zoo has bred this endangered species successfully.
