It’s rare to see the mom and baby orangutan this close to the glass. The baby was very entertained by pressing her face up to the glass.
Everyday activities for the orangutans.
The baby chimp was out playing by herself.
The two baby elephants are finally growing up.
I went back to Lowry Park zoo early on a Sunday morning to see the baby tiger cub. The baby was not out that morning so the dad was out alone having a snack. He seemed to be enjoying it. He kept showing it off.
Mpumi is 3 years old and Mavi is 2 and a half years old. They have different mothers but Dad is the same.
I was there a few days before Christmas one morning and was able to watch them play for a while. Both babies were running around and playing. Everyone was having so much fun watching them.
The impalas have free run of the elephant exhibit and for the first time I noticed that one of them was missing a foot. Asked one of the volunteers about it and she said that she was born without it and has not had any problems. She was running around with the other impalas.

“Yummy bee” says the lizard.
“Yuck! It stings”
I finally saw the baby pygmy hippo out of the water.
Half siblings hanging out together
They were chasing after the gulls and scared the gazelles instead.
Extreme close-up. They were climbing out of the pool
The younger one, six months old, was having a hard time getting back up the stairs.
Even from the back she is so cute.
Not sure if she’s actually eating the hay yet or just playing with it.
Hiding under mom.
Pre-Christmas trip to the zoo. Another warm sunny day.
