Zoo Tampa in late July

Little critters at Zoo Tampa in late July.

Even though it was hot the gibbons were swinging back and forth and hooting.

Some of the other fun faces at the zoo.

A cloudy almost rainy day is a good day to go to the zoo in late July. It’s too hot to go on a sunny day. Most of the animals were out moving around the morning I visited for a quick walk. There’s always something different there to see each visit.
