This week, the animals take the stage. 🙂
The zoo’s three African lions.
One of our two Bengal tigers, looking hilariously cross-eyed.
Melisha the meerkat.
A hungry capuchin monkey. Note how he’s already forgotten that he’s holding food in his quest to gain MORE food.
The emu practises his withering look of disdain, just in time for me to produce yet more slightly stale hot cross buns.
Feeding the spider monkeys.
Spider monkeys: much better animals than spiders.
Poor alpacas got short shrift from me, after about a thousand of them tried to kick me on the alpaca farm.
I know which animal I wallaby…
This peacock scared the life out of me by sleeping next to the toilet in the middle of the night.
Just feeding a tiger. Don’t worry, we give her bigger bits of meat as well.
Chinchilla! Oh so fluffy. Chinchillas bathe in dust and should never get their fur wet. To be clear, this is a fact and not an obscure joke.
An important meeting of the goats.
Bluey the blue-tongued lizard. Named for his frequent low mood and his love of jazz. To be clear, this is a joke and not an obscure fact.
Our female donkey plays Jonathan’s favourite game: apple or camera?
Just looking at this photo makes me laugh. You can’t take kuni kuni pigs seriously. Unless they challenge you to a fight; they’re bloody massive.
Poppet, our hand-raised capuchin, ponders the meaning of life.
Just look at that attitude. Sharon is essentially the closest our zoo has to a teenage girl.
What’s a macaque’s favourite food? Macaque ‘n’ cheese. (Not really. Please don’t feed them cheese.)
