Albuquerque Biological Park
ABQ Biopark is a combined botanical garden, aquarium and zoo in this city of between 5,000 and 6,000 feet of elevation that we were able to visit (with Moxie) very briefly on our 2019 Thanksgiving trip drive of over 1,800 each way miles.

river otter
River otters, once nearly extinct in the region, are making a comeback. It's fortunate, because they feast upon some invasive fish species.
