More Zoo Animals

Toronto, Ontario


Welcome back!

This week I have a variety of different critters from the Toronto Zoo.

First up, is the Grevy's Zebra. I highlighted him a bit last week, but he was kind of hidden behind trees, etc...so here's his whole body! :-)

Next three pics are of the African Lion...just lazying about on a sunny day! I can't blame him!

Next pic is that of the African Penguins. They were not on display, but I got this pic of them being rounded up for something in the back of their enclosure...They are still so cute!

Next two pics are of the Scarlet Ibis...such a pretty bird! I love his long beak too!

Last pic is of a Blue-crowned Motmot...Another very colourful bird.

Well, that is all for this week! Come back next week for some more animals from the zoo!

Have a great week!

Views From The Zoo

Toronto Zoo, Toronto, Ontario


Welcome Back!

This week I have a few more pics from the African Savanna area of the Toronto Zoo, including some greenery..not sure what the first one is called, but I believe the other two are wild roses...I remember the scent of them! :-)

Animals, this week, include a couple of the Grevy's Zebra, who was being kind of shy. I have better pics of this one which I'll highlight next week. Also, some pics of the Olive Baboon..I love watching these guys...they remind me of little kids, always picking on each other and rolling around on the ground, even down hills...too cute!

Enjoy your week!

More From The Toronto Zoo

Toronto, Ontario


Welcome back and Happy New Year! I can't believe we are in 2018 already..time flies when you are having fun, I guess!

We enjoyed our time visiting family in Ontario, but it sure was cold there as well as a ton of snow, which we were lucky enough to drive thru...I say that sarcastically! :-)

Anyway, we are now home and relaxing a bit before we are back to work...

Here are some different animals this time, some wild, some not so...

The first three pics are of the Greater Kudu, who is found in the African Savanna area. The next pic and the only good one I got is of the River Hippopotamus who is also from Africa. The rest of the pics are of a Canadian Goose family and its various members, who were out enjoying the sun with a swim through one of the water areas. Too cute not to take a couple of pics, right?

Enjoy your week!

Toronto Zoo Animals

Toronto Zoo, Toronto, Ontario

Here are a few more shots of the Masai Giraffe that I started to highlight last time. As mentioned, these are a rarity sometimes at the zoo! They always seem to be in their indoor enclosure, which does not allow great pics.

The last few pics are of warthogs. I believe these are the one year olds. If you search on my site, you will likely find the baby warthog pics, which were taken last year (I think :-)) Anyway, they are not as big as their parents yet, so they must still be juveniles. And, they are not as cute as they used to be either! :-)

Anyway, we are heading to Ontario to visit family over the holidays, so I won't likely post until January again. So, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Have a great holiday!

More next year...

The Toronto Zoo's Masai Giraffe

Toronto, Ontario


 Welcome back!

This week I'm highlighting some giraffe photos. These guys were outside in their enclosure. Most days when I've been there, they've been in their smaller enclosure, so I haven't gotten any pictures of them in quite awhile--so, you can imagine my excitement seeing them out and about!

More next week! Have a great week!

More From The Zoo...

Toronto, Ontario

Welcome Back!

This week I'm highlighting more animals from the Toronto Zoo. These are not in any particular order...just the way they were shot.. If you've never been to the zoo, the zoo is laid out in various geographical regions vs type of animals, so you do see prey animals next to predators... (different cages of course!)

Here, we have photos of: a Red Tailed Green Ratsnake, White's Tree Frogs, Straw Coloured Fruit Bats (hanging around) and the Red River Hog (warthog). I was happy with these ones as they are all behind glass except the warthogs...

More next time! Have a great week!

Toronto Zoo Animal Photos

Toronto, Ontario


 Welcome back!

Sorry, I've been MIA for quite awhile...I started a job as a Job Coach to a young autistic man and I work two days per week with him. It's been quite a blast, but tiring as well! :-) I've also been working on my card creations, getting a Facebook page ready and posting pics, etc.

Keturah also came for a visit so we tried to get out and enjoy the weather when we could. We still enjoy going out, even when it's cold...we just bundle up! Today is a rainy day, so I'm  catching up on computer work. I had to go through the next folder of pics on my hard drive and found these zoo pics...Brooke and I went back in June 2015 and these are some from that visit...

A white rhinoceros, paper white butterflies, clouded leopard and some fish. The last four are behind glass, so they aren't the best I've done! :-)

Have a great week!
