Lions and Tigers and Bears . . . Oh My!

Here are a few images from some recent trips to both the San Diego Zoo (5/8) and the Zoo's Safari Park (5/4). We saw a lion up close.




The tiger had a very large fresh bone to chew on.




The grizzly bears were wrestling.




We waited a bit, and eventually Nindiri the jaguar finished her nap and went for a prowl.




I doubt that these next guys would have been too happy to see the lions or the tigers. Even I seemed suspicious to them.




We stopped in to see the hummingbirds.




The images above were all from the Zoo on 5/8. Earlier in the week I spent the afternoon at the San Diego Zoo's Safari Park (formerly known as the Wild Animal Park) in Escondido. It was getting towards the end of the Butterfly Jungle special exhibit.






And now something a little bigger.
