And here's some lounging we did on our own...
If you ever have any doubt that animals have personality...you should have seen this gorilla. My mother in law kept saying how sad he looked and he looked kind of shyly at her and then...stuck out his tongue at her! No joke! We all had a good laugh over that one. I love a gorilla's eyes...so expressive.I joked with Jody that this gorilla reminded me of him...he took it well and chuckled. Seriously, this gorilla looked either bored senseless or like his lady love just broke his heart. He just rubbed his fingers along the log and was all sprawled out...it was hilarious to watch him.
Red Pandas...I love Red Pandas, they look like stuffed animals.
I wish I had gotten a better picture of the mother and baby chimp. It wrapped it's arms around it's momma waist and hung upside down while she carried it. And to say it was sweet and made a mom's heart flutter is an understatement. The daddy followed closely behind and the mom actually grabbed a baby quilt in her mouth and drug it over to a sunny spot, spread it out , and the whole family laid down together. It was neat.Was sorry I didn't get pictures of every animal we saw, there were so many. But we all had a blast and will be going back again in a month or so when there will be even more animals on exhibit!
