I thought I would share more photos from my trip to the San Diego Zoo a couple of weeks ago. It started off a really grey day but as often happened in the mornings, an hour or so later there was a lot of blue up there.
These girls were part of a school group. I noticed the Koala Bear backpack on the little girl on the right.
Later on I found myself looking at the real kind, several of them who were sleeping. And not an actual bear as my blogging friend Diane in Australia reminded me, but an honest to goodness marsupial. Marsupials as we all know carry their young in pouches. Thanks Diane!
There is that blue sky I was talking about.
This lookalike seal caught my attention too. At each side there were two holes where children could stick there head through and have their photo taken next to him. I saw grown ups taking their turn.
Another statue, this time of the polar bear.....
right outside of their exhibit.
This is an Arctic Fox next door. I couldn't take a real good photo of him. In the wild he would be following the polar bear for a free meal.
More bears, this time the Panda.
An opinion Mr. Panda?
This one was high up in a tree.
I always like to make a trip to the reptile house. This is a Rainbow Skink from East Africa.
This handsome fellow is a West African Dwarf Crocodile.
I couldn't figure out if these were female pea fowls or juveniles. Indian pea fowls are found in India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Green pea fowls Southeast Asia, Congo pea fowls in central Africa. The Indian and green pea fowl like open forests, while the Congo pea fowl lives in the rain forests.
Not much of a crest as yet but still a pretty bird.
Here we have a Bornean Binturong or Bearcat. He can be found in Western or Northern Bornea. He likes to live in dense forests.
A Spotted Hyena. He is found throughout Africa below the Sahara Desert, living in savannas, semiarid regions, scrublands and in some cases, mountainous areas.
Here we have a Visayan Warty Pig from the Philipine Islands of Negros and Panay.
This is a Red River Hog, the smallest of the African swine. Look at those ears, he has his own decorative tassles.
A yellow-footed Rock Wallaby who would normally live in the rocky outcroppings of Southern Australia.
Enough for now, more zoo photos in later posts.
Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and Sylvia for hosting My World.
