Belfast Zoo

On Sunday, I went to the zoo! I rained and rained, but I still had a great time. My animal kingdom knowledge is limited, but I'll try to name each animal correctly. Just don't be surprised if I say "camel thing".

Keen to get into the dry, we went to see the giraffes.


Next door to the giraffes were the elephants.


There was even an elephant outside in the pouring rain.


The zebras, on the other hoof, were closed in.

The capybara didn't mind the rain.

The farm animals at the zoo were a bit more fussy. Some choosing the indoors...

...While others chose the outdoors.


The penguins loved the water.

And here's an otter eating a fish.

And there were some sunbathing sea lions.


Some sort of monkey (knowledge failing...).

And hoorah! A camel thing!

And there's my favourite wild animal, the lion.


And finally... a prairie dog.

This post wouldn't have been possible without my poor Dad taking me to the zoo on a wet Sunday. Thanks!
