Pittsburgh Zoo

I've only went to The Pittsburgh Zoo in the summer. Someone made the suggestion to go on a nice, winter day. A couple of weeks ago, we had a beautiful Sunday, so Mr. Bruises, Tammy and I hit the zoo and it was nice. Not as crowded as it is in the summer.

We were afraid that we wouldn't see many of the outdoor animals since it was still chilly. We were surprised to see almost all except for the zebras and giraffes. They have heated rocks for the animals.
I love taking photos of the tigers and lions. They always seem to have such expression on their faces.









This was one of the two baby elephants that the zoo has. This little one was just full of himself that day. Running, bucking like a bronco. He (or she) was fun to watch!




The polar bears are another favorite of mine. I would have loved to have gotten a photo of them swimming from the tunnel, but they don't swim too often throughout the day.

I fell in love with this little meerkat. She kept coming and posing by the glass. It made me think of Flower from Meerkat Manor and made me a little sad.
