r.i.p. dear Aurora
I met Aurora in 2012 at the Cleveland Metro Park Zoo. She was a beautiful, sweet lady. She was kind enough to share her exhibit with our Aquila for a couple years while his exhibit was being renovated. May she rest in peace

While the keepers were giving a talk I went to the underwater viewing to watch Aquila get his treats. I happened to catch this one splashing right in front.
