This fella was awesome. Some sort of crane. But he's a model at heart. He was quite the posing machine! He remembered to accentuate (sp? or something like that) his neck to show the long lines of his body.
And another tall fella! Zoo Boise just received a new giraffe. I'm not sure if this guy is the new one. We currently have two giraffes and they were inside by the time we got to the zoo. But we were still able to watch from the observation windows.
What does my child spy now?
And the king of the jungle. Enjoying some time in the sun.
Alas! What would inspire a child to get THIS excited?
I mean seriously - look at that.
And who wouldn't be? The tigers are amazing. There were two in there today and we saw them fight! Of course I didn't have my camera out - but a brawl was in the making. We stayed for several more minutes to see if any further action would break out. We were not so lucky.
He was slightly pleased with the tiger exhibit.
Here we are taking a ride on a kamodo (sp?) dragon. The child really wasn't sure what to think - is it real? And if not, what are we doing?
Same with the camel. He started out having a good time, but then he started crying. He was not impressed with Mr. Camel.
This is Mr. Spider Monkey....and the mess he has created.
This beast.......yuck.....was one of the last exhibits. Thank god.
Overall, everyone had a fabulous day at the zoo!
