At one point all three of the tigers decided to nose around under this large fake log looking for a piece of beef heart that they missed earlier. That's Mek, the mother, on the far right. Her cubs are now just over a year old, and around 180 lbs. She's about 200 lbs., so they're catching up quickly. The two males will probably get to around 250 lbs.
I think Christopher is getting a little too close to his mother.
I can't say I was really surprised with what happened next.
Funani the Hippo was sitting out in the middle of the pool. Her son Adhama was nearby, poking his head up for a breath every now and then.
This Crocodile lives in a glassed-in enclosure next to the Pygmy Hippos. There was a fair amount of glare and reflection on the glass today - I had to wait for people with really colorful shirts to walk on so they didn't show up in the shots.
On my way out I spotted that crazy peacock who likes to annoy the ducks.
