"Having lunch with my Mama"
Gorilla's at the San Diego Zoo in California having a "Mother - Daughter Lunch." You have to smile as they ignored their audience, and mother continued feeding her little one. What an example of bonding in the animal kingdom!
Giraffe reaching for the best!
Everywhere our team goes we look for special animals in zoos, animal parks, safari parks, preserves, and sometimes we find them in a shop. Sometimes they seem to be talking to us or telling a story. This little fella had already learned that if you want the best, you reach high. Isn't that what our parents always told us?
This little fella is running wild in the Safari Park at The San Diego Zoo. The trees are endless, but he knows that the tender and best leaves are up high, where only he and his friends can reach.
Milk Please" ......These babies are hungry!
There mamas could not get there fast enough for these babies. They were so cute as they waited for mama to give them some attention. Both they and there parents live at the Safari Park in San Diego, California.
Look At Those Eyes.........He Does Not Seem To Miss Anything.
Lemurs are native to the Island of Madagascar. They are fun to watch and look like they are crossed with a raccoon and a cat. But they are one of the most well-known primates from the island of Madagascar. Sometimes they look like dancers gliding along and other times they seem to be singing. The only thing is they remind me of a whale. They are perhaps one of the most unique animals in the Safari Park in San Diego.
It Is Feeding Time For These Babies
What fun to get to feed the little ones that have no mama at the San Diego Safari Park. They are so cute as they get their bottle.
Happy Giant Panda Having Breakfast At The San Diego Zoo
This happy panda has come all the way from China to live at the San Diego Zoo. There is nothing more important to do during the day than to eat Bamboo. These Pandas spend around 12 hours a day eating what they love the most, Bamboo. They have five fingers to actually aid them in stripping the hard outside and exposing the inner sweet Bamboo treat. They peel the hard outside away with their teeth and just eat most of the day away. No wonder they are so rolly poly and cute.
