A few visits…
Welcome to the Los Angeles ZOO
A handsome decorative fence.
Our own Meerkat Manor.
Always the first stop, because they are so cute. He was really yipping it up today.
Pink Flamingos. Just like on your lawn, only stinkier.
An exit stop at the flamingos as they rush off for dinner.
One of the displays in The LAIR – Living-Amphibians-Invertebrates-Reptiles.
I think they did a good job with the gorillas. Of course it is always so problematic, the whole zoo thing, but I’ve made my peace with it.
Mr Big Guy, through the glass.
O Sole Mio.
Sorry about the right-into-the-sun look, but check out that sweet baby’s tongue.
Here Kitty Kitty.
…thanks for holding still.
This kangaroo was speeding around the enclosure, high and fast. The kids got big eyes.
When The Grandgirls Were Young
A lot of the area is moated so you’re watching from a distance, and then there is one section with glass where the gorillas come up close. It’s not like a movie.
Hellooo, hellooo, look over here.
The moms – PhotoPhoto!
Here’s what they were looking at. Aww.
They had volunteers in the children’s section offering snake handling opportunities…
…and you know I’m gonna be lovin’ that!
The gang’s all here.
