There is a serious heat wave going on in the western US. Out east, we have heat, but not like that.
Death Valley is at 129 F.
Arizona is also very hot.
At the Phoenix Arizona Zoo, the people who care for the animals are busy making sure their charges are okay.
I found some pictures of unusual animals.

All of the pictures are from Wikimedia Commons.

The first two pictures were taken by John Sagredo from Chandler, Arizona, United States.
