Calgary Trip: Calgary Zoo
Went to see the Calgary Zoo. It was very hot. Many of the animals were more sensible than the people and stayed under shelter or in their huts.
|Reticulated Giraffe from Western Africa and are an endangered species. They eat 16 - 20 hours a day and upto 140 lbs||Slender-Tailed Meerkat from Southern Africa. They stand up like this to watch for predators|
|From one of the greenhouses.||Crocodile Monitor Lizard from Papua New Guinea. They can grow up to 13 feet and weigh as much as 200 lbs|
|Grevy's Zebras. They are from Africa and on the endangered species list||Inland Bearded Dragon from from central Australia. They like bugs, flowers and fruit to eat.|
|I forgot to take a picture of his sign!||African Blue-Bellied Rollers. This is a male. This display had just male birds that were waiting to be sent to another zoo.|
|Chilean Flamingos are a species at risk. The pink colour comes from the red carotenoids in the algae they eat.||There were four elephants. This is one of the three females (the male had metal caps on his tusks). They were enjoying the water spray.|
