but first, a few shots from around the Zoo on the way to the gardens where the Dino's are set out.
first to see where the bush dogs, always fun to watch running around following each other :D
walking past the raptors i have managed a shot of one of the owls in the aviary
and one of the two gorgeous tiger cubs :) which have now been sent away to form new breeding pairs in Europe :( will miss seeing them!
Right! its Dino time, i have not a clue what to expect. starting next to the "realm of the Comodo dragon " with this bronze statue
walking through the entrance i can see a small Dino in the bushes but then came face to face with this!!!!!!
i have just been soaked as it spits water! wtf! so funny really :D very realistic with all parts animated moving backwards and side to side then bending down to eye level .
further down the path i have come across this huge head! haha not moving though
around the corner is Triceratops with little babies :) cute!
they merge is so well in with the gardens
peanut head Dino :)
must be feeding time for the Dino's lol
Tyrannosaurus Rex , with a youngster
baby in the bushes :D
stuck in the mud???????
that was the last of the Dino exhibits
walking around the rest of the i take a few shots before it starts to rain, sigh!
a face only a mother could love haha
i have taken shelter in the tropical house, but is so dark in here i am really struggling to shoot anything, managed this lovely image using iso 4000 to get enough shutterspeed.
i have chased this sunbittern around for ages , this is the best i can get.
i stop off in the jaguar house, not a sign of the big cats but for once the sloth is in a position to photograph is face! Yay iso 6400 for this one as its very dark , but is first time i have ever seen its face :D
the end of a unusual day to say the least , really enjoyed it :D
