Visited the Toronto Zoo yesterday and saw my first bear. Unfortunately, the 2 Grizzly's didnt seem to have been let in on the fact that this was my last chance to see a bear! They slept in their holes, occasionally getting into another position, but pretty much just slept. I sat there for, oh i dont know about half an hour, hoping that they had had enough sleep and that any second now they would jump up and do some circus tricks or something, but apparently it was not on their agenda.
Not really that photogenic, this was the best i could do.
The polar bears however were much more entertaining, well one of them,so i watched it swim around for a while.
The zebra was a poser and didnt mind me taking pics of him, he jus kept eating his grass. He was nice and close though.
The ostrich seemed to be a little upset about something but took great photos.
But the highlight of the visit for me was the baby Orangutun. He was born in Janurary and there is a contest going to give him a name. He was sooo cute. They were both so close, sitting right next to the window. He didnt have proper control of his arms n legs so they were just flopping around. Then she started feeding him and after that pulled some straw up and put the sheet over it to make a bed for him. She plonked him there and then let him suck on her fingers. It was hard for me to pull myself away from them.
After the crappy weather when i got here, yesterday turned out to be a really good day, even got a little sunburnt from walking around the zoo.
Today looks to be another nice day so i might head up the CN Tower and snap the great view, then head down a little further to walk along the lakeside.
Hope u are all well.
Take care & love ya, Bec
