Mommy and the Grandpeeps went to the Tucson Zoo.
They had a wonderful time--there were lots of visitors, especially families with kids learning all about different animals and their habitats. The animals looked fat, sassy, and happy; and several of the exhibits had been recently remodeled and expanded.
Here's a few phone photos:
A white peacock. Do you think he has any dark meat?
Mommy was astounded at how big the rhinoceros was...and this one was a female! The male is even bigger.
These macaws were preening each others bottoms!
(Please excuse our Mommy, she has a butt obsession, apparently.)
Can you guess what THIS is?
They are HUGE. It would take a while to eat the whole thing. Srsly.
There were five elephants--they are all related females.
The one in the middle is a baby, and the one on the right is a juvenile.
These two were the oldest, and clearly ruled the herd!
The tigers were snoozing...the little boy in the photo was there with his brothers, and Mommy noticed that they read every single placard at each exhibit, which made her very happy.
The flamingos had their feather all ruffled! Do you see the flamingo chick in the center left? (He's the gray puffball--you may need to embiggen.) One of the adults was picking on him and his parents got all up in that bully's stuff, defending their young 'un.
The next time your peeps call you "Nosy", just show 'em the anteater!
ACK! Escaped Snake!
Not really, he's a sculpture.
Did we scare you?
Mommy's favorite animal of all was the black panther, naturally.
No worries here!
We hope you enjoyed the Zoo.
