Mine and Ellie’s zoo memberships run out at the end of February, so we took the opportunity on Sunday to make one more visit.
We started by going to the chimpanzee talk. Two of the chimpanzees had what looked like a proper fight, one wielding a stick. The zookeepers were at pains to explain that they were just being “playful”, although this was the “most playful” they’d ever seen them.
Another highlight was the pelicans. Ellie was quite taken by them because they followed her along the boundary of their enclosure.
Finally, we went to a “Meet the Reptiles” event, at which Ellie got a chance to hold a snake. I passed on the opportunity.
And here are some of the other animals we saw.
