I was at the Houston Zoo in Hermann Park yesterday. The day started off rainy but stopped later in the morning. It was a gorgeous day and there was no crowd. I did find a couple of interesting things. For those who are proponents of the Children’s Zoo location for the casque I think I may have located the casque for you. In the picture below I am pretty certain the gorilla on the right is curled up around the casque. If you sneak into the zoo at night and climb over the rail into the gorilla area I am sure you will have no problem getting it from him. 🤣 Also, the second picture is of the current lion fountain in the present location of the Children’s Zoo that is no where near where it was when Preiss visited. I, for one, strongly disagree with the Children’s Zoo as being the location.
