Having only been to two zoos in my life (the Boise Zoo and a zoo in China), yesterday I went and saw what could only be called the “zoo of the zoos” in San Diego. My roommates and friends from Southern California helped me get psyched up to go. So, I left school for the weekend and spent the day seeing cuddly and not-so-cuddly animals with Keith and his family. Here are some pictures from the trip.
Stinky flamingos…they can’t help it, I guess. I liked him. Thanks, Keith, for taking this one!This one too. I think it pays to be tall. His name is 高高，or “High High” in Chinese. He looks so peaceful! The lynx was very active, compared to the other big cats. Before his feathers puffed up. Meercat, contemplating. In sync. That elephant had a knack for walking away from me right when I wanted to get a shot–but I put this picture in the gallery because I like the balance of the landscape.The spoonbill spent so much of his concentrated energy on dead fishies! It was exhausting watching him play with his food and not eat a bite.
