It's a great place and even better that admission is free (I'm still not quite sure how they manage to function without I guess major sponsors or subsidies from the City?)
Here are are a number of photos from the trip to the zoo.
This guy was really interested in the birds in the trees.
The otter was soooo fast! I took probably over 30+ photos and this was probably the best of the bunch though still pretty blurry.
The Children's area had this fantastic climbing structure indoors. I'm sure Finnegan and Keira would have had a blast on it.
This silver back ape weighs in at over 400 lbs.
I promise I did take some more pictures of animals. I love photographing flowers because unlike the animals they don't move (except on really windy days) so they are so much easier to capture.
I think these were African Wild Dogs - what amazing coat colouring the have!
