CALIFORNIA SEA LIONS

Leonard's comments:

I transcribed the P.O. box address because it's so unusual. A street address makes sense because you want people to visit the zoo. But what kind of mail were they expecting to their P.O. box? "Dear Hogle Zoo, I am intrigued by your description of sea lions and would like to order a breeding pair."
