Another Great Saturday at the San Diego Zoo

Bullet the Fishing Cat was alternating between sitting up high on a ledge watching people and cruising around his habitat this morning. He's pretty good at making use of cover.

When I first arrived at the Malayan Tigers they were all in a jumble, and to most people it looked like they were all sound asleep. But with a closer look you can see that mom Mek was keeping a close eye on all the people while her sons napped.

After a while the little guys wandered down towards the pool at the uppermost viewing area. There were so many people in front of me I couldn't see quite what was going on - but something certainly was happening.

I finally got a good look at the Red Panda, but the mid-day sun makes for some pretty harsh lighting.

This guy has some serious tusks.

The Grevy's Zebras were eating when I first got to them.

After a bit they decided it was time for a roll in the dirt.

I stopped in at the Gorillas briefly, but between the glare on the glass and all the people it's tough to get a decent shot.

I'll finish up this group with my usual last shot - the Crested Screamers. These guys are often my last stop on a day at the Zoo - partly out of convenience and partly because they are just such cool birds to watch. They live with the Flamingos in the large pool right by the entrance and exit. I generally stop at one of the benches there to put away my camera before heading out to the car.

It looks like this is my 200th blog post . . . I'm not sure if that really means anything, but it sounds like a lot.
