Was at the Zoo in Moline, IL back at the end of June.

I have to say that nursing issues ran with other animals as well...while visiting the giraffes we saw this...

While the little one was nursing..one of the males came over and pushed him away. It was so sad to watch...Mommy and baby snuck off to a far corner away from the males and resumed their nursing..

Lol...I love NIP pics. I took this one a few months ago at Houston Zoo. Orang Utan Solaris was then six years old.

BWB!

We have also managed to catch the giraffes nursing! At the time mama was sort of pulling away, like, kid, I'm trying to eat lunch here! I was cracking up at how incredibly like it was nursing an active toddler.
