Zoo Tour - Part II (Yes they do have animals)

Bongos --
-- and their beautiful coat.
The girls anxiously await the opening of the gate.
This Giraffe was trying to prune a Wax Myrtle.
These are some of the newest arrivals and their mother, sunning on faux rock.
Could this Meerkat be one of Flower's kin?
This male Ostrich did not let a crowd of pre-schoolers slow his pursuit of the female. I sure that when the "dance" was over, some explaining had to be done by the chaperons. I never saw the tail feathers open on this Peacock, but it was handsome nonetheless.
These were my son's favorites - the Prairie Dogs.
Lastly, the Box Elder Bugs needed no cage.
