Faces only a Mother could love

The orangutan babies are very popular with the kids at Zoo Tampa.

It’s rare to see the babies near Dad but this one was hanging out with him.

More shots of the baby Colobus monkey. He was all white fuzz a few weeks earlier.

The gibbon baby was also a hit. It was tough getting shots of the baby against the parent and into the sun so these are a little blown out.

Linking to Wednesday Around the World.

Zoo baby explosion

Zooming in on the marabou stork babies at Zoo Tampa (formerly Lowry Park Zoo). They are born looking like old birds. Reminds me of the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button where Benjamin ages in reverse and is born an old person and then turns young. Only these birds look old their entire lives.

A new baby out in the African exhibit staying close to Mom.

The fuzzy white thing is a  baby Colobus monkey. So cute and easy to spot. The keeper said that the entire group helps raise the baby so the baby was comfortable moving around with all of them.

A wild baby tricolored heron waiting for Mom to feed it.

Little blue herons that were born weeks earlier over the alligator exhibit.

Wild baby mallards playing in one of the exhibits.

And just for fun, a turtle train.

So many babies born this early spring at Zoo Tampa. It’s fun to watch the kids get excited seeing all of the baby animals.
