"Mum, can I go into the pool yet?"
This is Makulu. He had grown so tall so quickly.
Oh Look! It is the Paddle Pop lion. What do you think he is dreaming of?
Apparently people can pay a fee to pose with some zoo animals including this tortoise. While this photo was taken, an evil male was pinning down another female among the trees. That poor female couldn't outrun the big male. I swear I have not seen tortoises moving so fast before. I thought they were meant to be slow.
What are you looking for Monifah? Isn't she just pretty?
Watch out, Mali! Don't be naughty Mali or those spikes can really hurt.
Here is Mali playing with her red ball. She has a blue one as well.
This is Menyaruh and he is NOT stupid! The zookeepers had left a few chunks of ice on the netting covering the Orang Utans' outdoor area. Menyaruh found one and tried to retrieve it. Later when I was in the building, I heard something knocking against the wall above one of the windows and I could see Menyaruh dangling right there. It turned out that he was trying to smash the ice into smaller chunks!
OK, I am off. I am suppose to stay away from this blog.
