Funny story, true story: my friend Andy is turning a certain age and for this grand milestone, he decided to go to the zoo. Unfortunately, I got the day wrong, so there I was, a grownup alone at the zoo. Gee, that doesn't look suspicious at all, does it? What to do, what to do? Well, it helps if it appears like you're looking for someone. Or if you walk really fast everywhere, which is kind of difficult since so many people there are either very old, very young or very fat. So that's what I did and I made the best of my dunderheaded error. Here are pictures:

A giraffe. Another giraffe:

A very serious-looking patas monkey:

An elephant:

An orangutan:

They also had fake life-sized dinosaurs. They were kind of cool:

It costs another three bucks to see them, but it's worth it. And the exit for this exhibit really is through the gift shop.

After that, I saw a miniature panda cow (that's really what they're called):

And a bunny rabbit:

And then I left.

What great pictures!! And with very little evidence of the animals not having semi-natural surroundings. I only saw one fence.

Only three bucks? Haven't been there for years, but I'm going, for sure. Maybe on a senior citizens day. Thanks for the inspiration.
