This little guy was sitting on the first sign we passed by
And then we looked down over a railing and saw this big guy
Next stop, the Orangutans
And the White Tigers
We walked into a special enclosure and Steve made friends with a trio of lemurs:
We turned around and were startled by this huge sleeping bat:
A crowd of Mouse
Deer inhabited the edge of the pathway - this one is about 10 inches in height:
I watched this guy and had to get the video...he turned toward me and I was sure he was going to jump onto my head! (I don't know what he is) And sorry if the video is sideways...
In the African area we were treated to these guys - and sang Hakuna Matata as we strolled:
And the cheetah was the only one behind glass - this gal ran full speed up to the window a pressed her nose up to it... was she trying to smell us?
And finally, this beauty and her baby are in a special research area for endangered species: love that nose!
This is only a small taste of the wonders of the Zoo - there is also a Night Safari that features nocturnal creatures. Maybe a future blog entry.
