A Tourist Paparazzi at the Zoo!

A few months ago hubby and I were in Sydney. It was a gorgeous day, and we decided to visit Taronga Zoo. We caught the ferry across the harbor and at the other side rode up the cable car to the top of the hill. The view from the zoo is incredible, especially from the giraffe enclosure.

Room With a View

Room with a view for the giraffes.

I joined the rest of the tourist paparazzi and roamed the zoo taking photos.

Kookobura

First up was this kookaburra. He didn’t seem to mind posing.

Koala 

Mr. Koola wasn’t very cooperative. In fact, he was a bit grumpy.

MountainSheep

Mr. Mountain Sheep was cooperative.

Meerkat

So was Mr. Meerkat

Meerkat 2

For a time. Then he turned his back and refused to pose.

Snow Leopard

Mr. Snow Leopard just wanted to snooze…

We had a fun visit, despite the uncooperative animals. Taronga zoo is in a gorgeous position, although comfortable shoes are a must.

Tell me about your favorite zoo experience.

  1. Those are great pictures. I haven’t been to a zoo since I was a kid.


  2. I hadn’t visited a zoo in ages either. This was a fun one to visit.


  3. What great pics, especially the snow leopard.


  4. The snow leopard was gorgeous!


  5. Very cool, and some awesome pics. I love visiting our zoo. In recent years I’ve gotten AWESOME pics of the tiger, lions, otters, meerkats, giraffes and prairie dogs while other animals have been “uncooperative.” Can’t wait until the new “Arctic Passage” is done — it will be the new home for bears, seals, reindeer and other animals.
