A giraffe waiting for handouts. You can buy "giraffe crackers" at the zoo to feed them.
The lioness.
The lion.
A spectacled bear. If you need proof that bears can climb trees, the log framework that this bear was lounging on was about 20 feet above the ground.
Another shot of the bear. It was clawing on the underside of the logs.
Frog bench in the small animal house.
Detail of the frog bench.

Blue poison-arrow frog. For more frog stuff, visit my Froggy Page.
A cougar (also known variously as a mountain lion or puma). It's sleeping inside a hollow log.
A Siberian tiger. It was snoozing in the sun for a while, then got up, and snoozed in the shade instead.
A peacock.
A couple of black-and-white lion-tailed monkeys.
A giant fruit bat. This was a visiting exhibition at the zoo when I was there.
Hippos lounging in their pool.
A pair of otters. I think these were European river otters.
Souvenirs from the zoo gift shop. Ribbit! :-)
