Not Cookie Monster

Every time I go to the zoo with my family this guy in a suit is outside for pictures. He doesn’t work at the zoo and it could literally be anyone in that costume. It’s strange. There is no way in hell I’m paying him for a pic with my kids. My daughter asked me once to take a picture with the character and I simply told her, “That’s not Cookie Monster”. She never asked again.
