Howletts Zoo

It was an overcast day but as our friends from Germany are visiting, we wanted to do something together. We were going to go to Legoland but left buying the tickets online too late. It was waaaay too expensive to buy tickets at the gate so we went to Howletts instead. The kids love animals.

The photo doesn't really show just how BIG this elephant really is! They are beautiful animals.

Here are the Black Rhino's. There are actually 3 of them with one just to the right - out of view.

We actually went at the right time because is was 'feeding time at the zoo!' Here is one of the tigers with his/her (I cannot tell!) bag of goodies but the one on the right that is jumping up was the one to get stuck into the other bag.

I didn't get to take photos of the gorilla's. They were funny when their food was dropped from the top of their massive cage. Some had climbed to the top to be the first to get the carrots and lettuce but the other ran around on the ground picking up the food and hoarding them in their arms. They would then go and find a quiet place to sit and munch away.
