San Diego Zoo - January 22, 2012

It was a little cool and overcast on Sunday morning, nice weather for a walk around the San Diego Zoo.

I spent a fair amount of time at the Malayan Tigers (see below for even more shots of the two cubs together). Here's Christopher, followed by his brother Conner.

The Night Herons are some of my favorite birds. They're actually not part of the Zoo's collection, but rather are local birds that just stop in for the food.

I stopped in to see another of my favorites, the Rock Hyrax. Apparently their closest living relative is the elephant.

The North Chinese Leopard was out.

Later in the day the sun came out for bit, which made for some great light on the plants at times.

I tried to get a decent shot of the Zebras, but they weren't cooperating at all, and I wasn't about to leave with nothing. 

Ubon, the new male Malayan Tiger, was out later in the afternoon. It was pretty dark there, and he wasn't holding still.

Since this is the start of the Year of the Dragon it only seems right to end up here with a dragon of sorts, a Komodo Dragon.
