A real obit this time

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.


  1. I understand - I really do.

    Oh and I LOVED your pretend obit -- wish I had your way with words - but that's for another blog post I am composing in my head.

  2. Awww. You know it we are often more saddened by the death of an animal than we are of some people.


Make my day and leave a comment. C'mon you can do it.
