A day at the Zoo

I have never been to a zoo. There. I said it. I don't know why on earth I'd never been to one. I mean, I like animals, all kinds of. So, keeping the promise to Iris, we ventured out to Copenhagen and the zoo!

First thing on the list: ice cream!

Different species of Flamingos.

The lions were magnificent! The cubs were born in June and soo cute.

In the tropic house, I made a new friend. This red-cowled Cardinal was is so pretty and not very shy. I got really close and had a nice chat.

One of my favorites are the colorful, but poisonous, small frogs.

I think snakes are so amazing! I'm not really afraid of them (like some people are) but thats easy to say when they are behing glas.

I didn't see any pygmy Marmoset but these Lion Tamarinds I could look at forever. So quick jumping between the branches.

Penguins are penguins, always entertaining.

When I saw the mighty polar bears, I was struck with this sensation that so many have. Animals shouldn't be in captivity. Their area was so small. One kept swimming round and round in a tight circle. I sure hope they hurry with the building of the Arctic area of the zoo.

The Asian Elephants seemed so gentle, walking slowly, throwing dust around.

Sometimes when you think you know someone, they surprise you! Like that fact that my Mum is not very fond of Baboons!

Giraffes. What more can I say?

  1. How can you never have been to a zoo??? Oh, well, better late than never :-) I can't believe how big Iris is!

  2. I think I've been to "Ölands djurpark" when I was little but I don't know if that constitutes as a zoo.
    And yes, Iris has become a little lady :) She's tall for her age.

  3. A nice resume off our day i the Zoo, thank you Anna.
