On my birthday we went for a trip to Zoo Atlanta. We had so much fun. The zoo has many baby animals that were born within the last year, so I thought this was our chance to see the little ones in action. Here are some of the animals we saw that day.
Check out those eyelashes!
Here is the momma kangaroo - you can tell cos of her pouch. She had a baby joey six months ago.
You can see the baby's little back paw peeking out of the pouch in this photo. The zoo keepers told us the baby will come out within the next month or so.
Next were the pandas. There was a newborn panda, but we did not get to see it. I think it was hiding in another part of their home.
This is the three year old panda. They love to eat bamboo.
We also got to go to the petting zoo. Doesn't this goat have such a happy smile?
I love how the wooly sheep feel.
Then we came back around to the kangaroos. We got to see thet little joey peeking out of the pouch! What an exciting day!
Look how sweet they are - momma and baby!
Then we got to see the baby giraffe! This baby giraffe was born in July.
These two were helping each other reach the leaves. they also were very snuggly.
We also saw the baby gorillas. This is the younger of the two riding on the momma's back.
This is my best picture of the two tiger cubs, too. Notice the white spots on the back of their ears? Those are to make other animals think those are eyes.
I love the otters! They were very playful when we got to see them.
The little orangutan was showing off for everyone watching.
This is the baby orangutan and the momma. This is my best picture of them together.
This is one of my new favorite animals, the red panda!
The naked mole rats were so strange!
And here is my Dad and Mom enjoying their day at the zoo!
