recently, i bought a zoo membership to the san diego zoo so my fiance would take me. i was so excited because zoo = many photo opportunities! even though we didn’t get to see everything, i got a lot of pictures (like 300!). needless to say, i had a very hard time picking my favorites. in a few weeks we’re going to go to the wild animal park (admission to both is included for a whole year with membership) so more animal pictures to come :)

zebra. <3animal prints

fishing cat. kinda cool…feline that likes to swim. and look how pretty it’s coat is!

otter. what a cute little guy

koala. he sleeps exactly like me!

polar bear. he likes eating carrots and grapes

peacock! it came right up to us so we got a lot of up close pictures. so beautiful!

i think this is a deer of some sort. i know that isn’t the right name….but i couldnt remember what it is exactly. i love the white stripes on the body.

doe, a deer, a female deer. sorry, i couldn’t help it. this little one was stretching…then it trotted away. so cute!

flamingo. makes me think of alice in wonderland. i loved how beautiful and graceful they look. and it’s pretty cool when they stand on one leg and do all these weird contortions with their body.

lesser flamingo. no joke! this really is called a lesser flamingo. kinda sad…mother nature makes you less pink, then man comes along and adds “lesser” to the front of your name. irregardless, still very pretty.

hugging monkeys. they were really cute. running around and playing. one of them would push the other one off the little platform they were on and then run around chasing him. but in the end, they hugged it out :)

this monkey has a mohawk!

two funny looking orangutans.

orangutan and me! i was up against the glass and he came up to me and just sat there in front of me. so cute. he hung out for a while then moved along…i decided i wanted a picture so i followed him. he was gracious enough to stop and smile for me :)

giraffe!!!! i forgot to wear my giraffe print shirt today :(

and hands down my favorite part of the day…

i got to feed it!!!!!!!!!

i have a ton of other pictures, but i’ll leave it at this for now. ill be posting pictures from my wild safari in a few weeks! :)
