I have been excited all last week because we were going to Chester Zoo on Sunday! So come Sunday, i was a happy child
Actually, i really wanted to go to a safari park! But the zoo was nearer to us so off we went. Spent the entire day just exploring the zoo and cooing over the animals, too adorable! Just look at the baby elephants!
the elephants were the first we saw. got to see them real close too. actually, we were really lucky ’cause we got to see most of the animals including the tigers and lions up close.
The baby elephant always look like it’s smiling
Interesting fact we learned was that most of the female and male animals lives separately and only come together during mating season. The male elephant was isolated in this area and i was like telling lex, that’s so sad! living all by himself! But then!! The female elephants and the babies were all making their way towards him. Like a visit! *melts into a puddle
I think the zookeepers had just refilled their food supply hence the giraffes were all gathered at this spot.
i was so happy to see the giraffes so so close that we stayed there for quite some time haha!
sneaked in some self-taken picture time:)
There were too many people near the penguins so was slighly disappointed ’cause i do like the cute creatures.
Oh, there was an incident with the chimpanzees which i failed to take picture of. Or more like disgusted haha! We were just strolling past the chimpanzees when Lex noticed a chimpanzee was facing away from the water stream so he said, oh i think he’s taking a dump. And the next thing, the chimpanzee grabbed the poo sticking out of him and ate it *horror face* HAHAHA there were two other couples near us who obviously witnessed it as well because the unison of “ewww” followed.
to erase the image of poo-eating-chimpanzee, here is some pretty tiger. HAHAHA, now i have the image stuck in my head!
again, there were so many people waiting to see the tiger at the platform. I didn’t feel like wrestling with children and risk being called a meanie so i reluctantly left. But Lex saw this tiger pacing about near the ground and i literally ran down the platform towards it so beautiful!
The too-adorable red pandas. I was really excited to see them because of an article in the DailyMail about the female red panda and the baby. Unfortunately the baby panda has been sent to another Zoo!
It was really hard to photograph them, i really need a better zoom lens!
we were looking at other animals when we heard this loud growling/roaring sound. the dinosaur exhibit was nearby so we thought it was just the automated dinosaur sound machine. but when we looking at the lions, this lioness was the culprit! her roar was whoa! can’t imagine, how loud the male lion could be!
There were other animals but the animals were less willing to be in the shots haha!
Now that the weather has suddenly gotten warmer, i feel as if summer is coming! *optimistic but then again, it’s UK we are talking about so better appreciate while the sunny spell last.
