More Fun at the Zoo

We enjoyed another fabulous trip to the zoo yesterday. This time we headed for Africa. Here's Maddox waiting on the zebra tram...

I like this picture because I was getting a hug...even if it is only my arm. ;-)

And then...we came across the gorillas. MY FAVORITE! And yesterday was such a treat! Normally the gorilla is alone and laying in the grass asleep everytime I visit. This time...there were two gorillas and they were up and around for about 5 minutes. We even saw one gorilla charge the other - very impressive. I have always loved gorillas. I find them endlessly fascinating...so I was beyond thrilled to get some great pics of these beautiful creatures yesterday.
