~~Zoo Do~~

Zoos are favorite destinations, so we are off to the San Diego zoo!





The first sign of wildlife was this lovely siting...




The next siting was phunny.  Sorry for the window glare, but you "get the picture."






This is the same guy....




Turned the corner to see BIG DADDY!








And then there was this toothy guy... only 2 tons... what a cutie....







Flamingos get their pink color from their diet that is full of carotenoids. They eat a lot of shrimp, prawns and other crustaceans that cause them to turn from a grey when they are young to pink.  (Glad you asked?)







Homemade snow helped these big beauties enjoy their space.














Oh...and these babies were the best.  (Oh...and this is when the clueless chick spilled my entire new and really cold beer!  ...but I digress...)








...and who doesn't love leopard print????







....it takes a village... "Come, Little One, Momma is over here....."







Lookout scout...and lazy day.









And finally....what a FACE!

I love zoos. I hope to get to our local one this summer. It's been a couple of years.

I love the San Diego Zoo. We were there a few years back off a cruise ship.
