A Few San Diego Zoo Pictures from Dec 21, 2103

Here are a few more pictures from last month at the San Diego Zoo. December is one of the best months to visit the Zoo.

We'll start out with 2 big cats you don't often see up and about, the Black Jaguar and the North Chinese Leopard.

I think this shot of the Arctic Fox is probably my favorite from the day.

I haven't stopped in to see the Meerkats in a while, they're always fun to watch.

Until they roll over onto their back you don't realize just how white the fur is on the underside of a Jaguar.

She looks so peaceful and friendly in that picture, it's hard to believe she is the same cat that's in the pictures at this earlier blog post.

Check out the claws on this bear.

Here's a young male Mandrill.

Late in the afternoon the Gharials were hanging out in their heated cave.

  1. Wow Frank, your zoo shots are really good. I'm visiting my Mom in San Diego this August and just picked up a Fuji XE3 and 3 "Fuji-Cron lenses. If you're around and wanna meet up, drop me a text at
