This is a post for all the animal lovers out there (like me, of course).
Recently, I visited the Los Angeles zoo. It is a small zoo and can be toured in about half day (takes more time if you take it really slow or if you go with kids).
I have to say that I saw some species I have never seen before. What was better, I learned a lot about different animals. There was a good balance between super cute creatures and weird specimens.
We first stopped by the meerkat’s den. They were posing for all the human beings surrounding them. They were quite funny.
We then approached one of the zoo’s main attractions: the Komodo Dragons. I don’t like reptiles at all. My husband made me enter. I have to confess I had a hard time inside their area (and lets not talk about the perils of processing Komodo Dragons photos).
We saw some cute darlings.
I took some good gorilla pictures.
Then, I saw animals I have never seen before.
Generuks live in East Africa (Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya). Babirusas are found on some islands of the Indonesian archipelago. The name babirusa means “pig-deer” in the Malay language. Anoas are only found on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. Elands live in the open forests and woodlands of central Africa.
More pictures are coming on a future post. Keep tuned.
This is it for now.
