The bird that jumped up and startled my niece and nephew while we were in the aviary. It's a Western Gray Plantain Eater.
Tortoises! These are Aldabra Tortoises.
The asian elephant exhibit is opening this year. These beautiful sculptures are all over the zoo. This was my favorite, I think.
Adolescent giraffe playing with the pulley cord where branches are hung high for food.
The adult male reaching as high as he could for eucalyptus leaves. He was quite near the railing. It was delightful to see him up so close.

The dark colored are American Flamingos. The lighter in color are Chilean Flamingos.
