Kashin died today aged 40. She’s been a fixture at the Auckland zoo for as long as I can remember. She’ll be very sadly missed by everyone in Auckland and especially by her much younger best mate Burma. The zoo is closing for the day tomorrow as a tribute to her.
I took this photo of Rory with Kashin (behind Rory) and Burma earlier this year. I actually feel quite sad about her being gone, she was a big feature of my childhood. Check out this photo gallery for some highlights.
