Fair enough I suppose, keeps the animals happier even as it limits the diversity of their collection.
Pair of Gallopogus Island Tortoises. WOW were they huge!!!!!!
Don't they just LOOK ancient?
Alpha meercats gettin' busy. (Ya have to see animals mating at least once at the zoo, and for me it was the meercats. *snerk*) "Mommy! What are those two doing?" "They're cuddling sweetheart!" "Really? Cause I thought they were mating."
Peekaboo with a giraffe
This Javan Rhino looks like it's in a timeout. The other one had just emerged from the mud puddle when we got there, still all glistening. Missed it by THAT much! :)
"Why are you taking a picture of a seagull?" "Cause I've never been this close to one before." "Oh for crying out loud!"
Where I come from, seagulls don't get that close to people. This one was within a metre of me.
How cool did the reflection turn out!!!!
Kangaroo sleepin' in the sun within 3 metres of me. No fence, no cage, just me, the path, and a wood log fence seperating us. :)
Perth is famous for it's black swans. In fact most tourist souvenirs features the black swan prominently.
Perth is also situated on the Swan River named for its striking denizens and noted for its extreme depth.
This was the funkiest little snake I'd seen. It could have nestled in the palm of a man's hand. The exhibit was really well done and created the perfect miniature environment.
All the other pics are mine but this one of Simo the Saltwater Crocodile. He was completely submerged in the water and dead asleep the entire 5 minutes or so I stood and marveled at this huge predator.
