Seems fitting to share one of my favorite pieces of Michael Giacchino music:

Ozzie was always one of the biggest draws for crowds when I worked at Zoo Atlanta. As a camp counselor, I didn't get to get too close to him or the other gorillas, but the campers always wanted to go see them. I often had a hard time convincing zoo guests to let my 4 and 5 year old campers in front of them at the gorilla exhibits.

Staff perks included behind the scenes at elephants, tigers, and the prep kitchen for the animals. I also worked with program animals as an animal handler, so I was always making kids days with bringing out tortoises, snakes , or the baby alligator.
