Even though it rained in the morning, the zoo was still great. We didn't get to catch all the shows as some of them were cancelled due to the rain, but it stopped half way through the morning and the sun came out which was good as it meant we were able to get off the zoo tram and walk around a bit.
These 2 Rhinos were ready to charge at each other until the baby Rhino purposely stood in the way, not sure what was going on!
I really liked the 'natural' barriers that they had in place, which meant that you could barely see the wire fencing with some of the enclosures, great for photo taking
Zebra - There's the age old question whether zebras are black with white stripes or white with black stripes. They look like they are white with black stripes in my opinion, but Google seems to come up with a plethora of answers
Most of the big cats were hiding under cover - I think because of the rain

The elephants having some breakfast
They kept tossing the branches with their trunk and hitting it on the ground several times before eating, anyone know why they do this?
And into the monkeys section:
Most of the monkeys look hilariously like little old men with serious faces
Awesome long tail for swinging around
This is what I mean about the hilarious face that only a mother could love!
A large group - they have the most gorgeous colouring - with red legs, grey body and a long white tail
Check out the cute baby!
Mr White Tiger
Very busy pacing back and forth
The smallest little baby in the pack
We did manage to catch one show...
