Just a tiny trippy- didn't want to put it in photography section as my pics are rubbish :lol:

About 10:30 we set off for the zoo, stopped for brekky on the way, think I had toast and Jam.

We got there, payed, and as the elephants are the first thing you see.. we went there.

the weather was glorious and they where very active :p015:

Next, We walked round until we spotted another animal, it was some type of donkey:

and we also found some ducks swimming around the perimeter of some type of tree animal who's name i can't call to mind! They where no-where to be seen so I got a shot of the ducks instead:

Mingos must be shy animals as you can't see them very well from any angle, sorry about the rubbish pics!

It's *Very* hard to snap a pic of these fellows. most of my others aren't much better than this! :sigh:

When we got the the orangutan thingy we realised how hard it was to get a photo of the little blighters!
