THE MAJESTIC GIANT ANTEATER


While in DC, I had a blast visiting the Giant Anteater exhibit in The National Zoo. Check out how majestic this animal is ...

Of course I'm partial to this amazing animal because it's the mascot of my beloved alma mater: UC Irvine. And after a long vacation, the tedious task of opening the mountain of mail becomes less tedious when you encounter little gems ... like this nice note from Rosemary and Carol form The School of Social Sciences at UC Irvine ...

... that contained a photo recently taken of me and Peter the Anteater (our mascot's official name) at an event to support construction of a new building for the School.

Speaking of anteaters, Gerardo has been raising money to build an exhibit for a Giant Anteater at the Santa Ana Zoo! To date, almost a million dollars have been raised in partnership with UC Irvine, The City of Santa Ana, and The Friends of the Santa Ana Zoo. Here Gerardo and I are with UC Irvine's Chancellor Drake and our good friend Genet at a recent event to raise support for the exhibit.

Also present was our good friend and State Assemblyman (and UCI alum), Jose Solorio.

Just goes to show that when people work together, anything can happen. Even a Giant Anteater in our local zoo! We will actually be getting a breeding pair so stay tuned. :)
