There’s a certain innocence about animals. We see it in our pets and we can also see it at a zoo. I enjoy going to the Sacramento Zoo, because it’s small and we can learn a lot about animal behavior. They are still maintaining small capacity attendance and requiring masks. That helps me feel more comfortable during my visit.
It’s also great to see the changes like the birth of a new Giraffe. Her name is Glory, and she is adorable. Here are a few pictures. In the first one she is claiming her mom. I’ve titled it: This is my mommy! In the last image, giraffe blends into giraffe.
The resident Pelican is one of my favorites. Some time ago, a keeper said they were going to send him to another zoo. So far they haven’t. I’m happy!
It was bone day at the zoo, so it was easier to photograph the big cats as they gnawed on their treats. The Lions and Jaguar were still and easy to photograph.
We all get sleepy after a big meal and the Snow Leopard is no different. What a big yawn!
Flamingos are beautiful, but they can have their disagreements.
The Orangutans were playful and a delight to photograph.
The Okapi are especially handsome with distinctive markings.
Of course I have more pictures, but we’ll save those animals for my next zoo visit. Take care everyone!
