Zoo

No school holiday would be complete without a trip to the zoo - I was more inclined to go to the Dolpinarium again - I asked T1 and T2 where they wanted to go - T1 wanted to stay at home and play with the 'Treasure box' - T2 wanted to see the monkeys at the zoo - then of course T1 wanted to see the snakes! So off to the zoo it was - baby had no choice and got to see it all. We got taken inside to see the crocodiles - too cold for them outside! - I'm not sure if this was a area that we should have been in, but one of the workers took us in there. The flamingos were having a party - boy they were noisy. The monkeys up to their usual tricks and this time went to see the tiny monkeys that I discovered last time. Snakes are boring - but the reptile house was nice and steamy hot (OK a bit pongy but toasty) Lots of lemurs to keep baby happy - they are so neat - you do get value for money from a few lemurs - Who knows where 1 tiger, 2 lions and a leopard have gone... perhaps it was too cold for them today too.....

T1 took this - really the bars in this section are decorative.....
Our old friend 'itchy bear' (more here) was in a good mood and a lot more healthy looking, happy and relaxed than the last couple of times we've been. He's got only a few teeth and likes bread over carrots or apples.
Back to school on Monday - Hurrahh!

I love to visit zoos. Whenever we travel and there is time for the zoo, I go! I particularly love the perspective of T1's shot of the zebra! Only from a child...adults would not think to do this!

We love the zoo - as you can tell, it's a long drive but very cheap entry - which makes it less painful. I'm so pleased that itchy bear looked a lot happier and healthier - perhaps (s)he doesn't like the heat? T1 and T2 take some great pictures, the world according to a 4.5 year old is very different. thanks gals.
