|The Topeka Zoo is still around, enjoyed by generations of citizens since opening in 1933. Recently a baby giraffe, Hope, was born. Hope was out in the giraffe yard — but no lions nor tigers nor bears were out. The zoo has them, but July afternoons are hot and these creatures aren't dumb. They were staying in, out of the sun. The zoo has plenty of animals and birds to observe and enjoy—but it WAS hot!
