I didn't realize that the big Galapagos tortoises liked to hang out in the pool, but it appears that they do.
It turns out the baby flamingos are not quite the color you might expect.
I always try to get to Tiger River a little early for the 11:30AM Keeper Talk. When I arrived at 11:00AM the female Malayan tiger Danai was napping on the hillside. Once the keeper showed up she got a lot more attentive. Maybe it was the fresh chunks of beef heart that were being tossed to her.
That blurry spot right in front of her nose is actually one of the chunks of meat on its way to her.
I also got a chance to get a look at the two little 3-month old tiger cubs that are not out on public display yet. I think they merit a separate post.
After the tigers I stopped by the hippo pool, and managed to grab a couple of shots of Funani and young son Adhama out for swim. This is certainly not something you ever want to see this close if you're out swimming in a river.
I took a trip up to the lion enclosure to see what I might find. It was already pretty hot by Noon or so, this guy had the right idea, a nap in the shade of a big tree.
I stopped in to the Hummingbird House on my way out, and found this.
