On My Mind: Zoo Pictures, Including LEMURS!!! (4)

As promised... zoo pictures!  I suppose I don't need to say too much about them... These were all taken at my zoo, The Toledo Zoo. I've gone there for years upon years, so I've seen most of these lovely animals since I was a youngster. And now they've got my favorite animal in the world--LEMURS--so I had to get a membership and plan on going there a few times just to watch them later this year. ^_^

Without further adieu... the pictures... ENJOY!

LEMURS!!!

Mom with baby!
This is the daddy, he came up to the window to say hi to us.
This picture won the prize for the day--the babies were running around like crazy.

Looking right at me.
Family :)
The baby just looks SO CUTE!!!

OTHER ANIMALS

Two baby tigers that are almost adult size, the one was cleaning the other, so cute!
One of the nicer close-ups I got of the penguins.
I think they were anticipating food, or staying cool in their cave.
I think this was the baby we saw last year, he's grown SO MUCH!
New baby with mom. CUTIE!
Giraffe--my mom told me back in the day you could actually touch them!
His tongue is sticking out. :P
Couldn't get a good shot of the Cheetah, but check out the chipmunk stuffing his cheeks!
Epic duck shot.

FLOWERS
~There's a whole section of just flowers and I couldn't help but take a few shots.~


And finally... me, being me

It's a bee!!!


Hope you enjoyed the little trek through my zoo trip!

  2. I love going to the zoo! The lemurs are very cute, you got some great shots.

    Aw, the ever elusive cheetah. The ones at our zoo are nearly impossible to see. They're always sleeping in high grass. It drives me crazy! I love cheetahs. I want to actually see them.

    1. Same here on cheetahs! I bet if I would look for them really early in the morning they might be more playful than in the heat of the noon sun. They are gorgeous though, one of my favorites after lemurs. :)

  3. I love the zoo but can't help feeling a little sad whenever I go there. I keep forgetting it's summer over there until I see pictures of sunny days and flowers. Looks like you had a great time!

    1. We definitely did. :) Sometimes I forget about the different seasons for us too. You're one of the few people I know in the southern hemisphere. <3

  4. ELEPHANTS! You know, I LOVE going to the zoo. A friend of mine and I went last year, and I think I'm going to suggest we go again this year, maybe in the fall. We literally stayed ALL day, and didn't even realize it. I wish our zoo here had penguins!

    1. I got a membership and plan on going out there a handful of times over the fall, winter, and spring. I could stay there all day too! :D
