I am so incredibly jealous that John (and whoever else) got to see Joe Rhode in person. I really find him and what he did to create Animal Kingdom absolutely fascinating. We were very bummed to have to miss the anniversary of AK by a few weeks. Unfortunately, my teaching schedule did not allow for it. So, while I was educating the next generation, you all got to see the man himself! I would be so excited if I were you! Anybody else have pictures? I'd love to see close-ups!
