Carys' first sighting of real 'Ephelants'. There were two types of elephants at the zoo, the Asian elephant and the African elephant. These were the Asian elephants and when we arrived to see them, they were still on the far side of the enclosure so we didn't get as good a look as we'd hoped. Unfortunately, we didn't see any African elephants but we did see Lucy Melosi walking by (the keeper squished by Pathi Harn).
Carys was very excited to see the giraffes.They were obviously very tall but she was fascinated by the baby giraffe. As she tells it "Baby giraffe in mummy giraffe's belly and very big with looooooong neck!" I'm not sure what Carys and the giraffe were looking at but it must have been more exciting than the camera
My what big ears you have Carys! Two peas in an ear pod
After watching the gorillas in their indoor enclosure, one of them came outside to wee, closely followed by the rest of them. Carys was very excited and made "ooh, ooh" noises whilst thumping her chest. I love the strut on ape number 4!
Look at the face of the Zoo worker! I wonder what she was thinking as she banged on the glass and the Silverback and his friends raced to the noise? Not long after this, the gorillas all sat around the window waiting for dinner presumably.
What a beautiful zoo view....see you in two years Sydney!
