So, last week, we took off for the zoo again. The first thing we did was to take the bus tour--one of the perks that came with our Diamond membership. The zoo was really crowded and there was quite a line for the tour.
Since the use the double decker buses, we had our choice of upper or lower.
We chose upper.
No, the upper level didn't have a roof. This is the roof of the boarding area.
The view from up top was great. Here is a view of the polar bear compound. Can you spot him?
Lots of people looking at something.
I love the Meercats. Probably my favorite zoo animal.
A new addition to the zoo--a Sun Bear.
One of the double deckers. Not sure why this one was blue instead of red.
Some ruffled feathers!
Lots of Giraffes.
Juveniles--all by the same dad. Look at the wee one. So cute.
Lined up waiting to be hand fed by the tourists.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree.
The zoo is having a China celebration this summer. Maybe that's why the line is a mile long to see the Pandas! We still haven't seen them. Maybe we will wait for a few months and see the new baby that was just born. Of course then the line will be REALLY long!!
Apparently there was some kind of costumed scavenger hunt going on. We saw quite a few adults in costume.
I thought the camels were kind of interesting. They have both kinds--the Dromedary (one hump) and the Bactrian (two humps).
This poor guy has a problem!
