Lions, tigers and huge elephants, oh my!
I love the zoo. If you had any doubts after my ramblings about my animal show obsessions, you know now. I had a great time.
The meerkats were keeping a watch for me.
It was a perfect sunny day for lounging around. The spotted hyenas thought so too.
There was lots of panda butt to go around.
There were pygmy hippos with a monkey on their back. I wonder if they are buddies.
The big hippo was a little bit elusive but I got a picture. He is looking at me. Don’t you see? They are camera shy.
We happened to walk by during lion feeding time. I was so close to this big guy.
Monkeys were everywhere.
The koalas were shy.
Of course, there were live elephants. This particular elephant was definitely the man of the house.
Did you know what a takin is? Neither did I but I do now!
This particular bird was my closest animal encounter, in one of the aviaries. He or she was not concerned with me at all.
These California buzzards are huge!
This gorgeous peacock was not a zoo animal but was a zoo visitor like myself.
There was an awesome warthog Momma and her active little babies but they were so active that I did not get a picture. Here is a mean looking warthog if I say so myself.
More lounging hyenas.
It is hard to tell but this is a black panther. A black panther!
This is me after my long day at the zoo. All that excitement had me tuckered out.
I should go to the zoo more often, don’t you think?
Thank you Cherie and Mike for going with me!
