This whole week was dedicated to monkeys, most of which were snow monkeys. That was because we spend a lot of time watching the snow monkeys and we even went back to their enclosure right before we left. I was just so fascinated by their beautiful bright eyes!
I don't really know what the names are of these various different monkeys, but I enjoyed seeing all of them! They are all so unique in their markings and behaviors! I also caught a red panda sneaking up a tree like a monkey so I decided to throw that picture in this group. :)
I was very patient and waited for the crowds to disperse so that I could get these pictures of the mother snow monkey with her little girl as they were waiting their turn to go into a little room with a computer screen. They seemed to be taking a test of some sort because a person dropped food through a tube to them after the monkey touched the screen. It was neat to watch, but I mainly focused on this little baby girl. :)
I seriously freaked out when I saw this little baby snow monkey! She had the brightest, prettiest eyes! Her and her mother were sitting just a few feet away from the glass! I wasn't able to get many pictures because a crowd had gathered and kids kept stepping in front of me in their excitement to see the little baby. I don't really blame them, but I do wish I had more pictures of this pretty little girl! :)
I think one of the reasons I really loved going to Lincoln Park Zoo so much is that they have so many big cats! I love all cats, but I am really captivated by big cats! This Jaguar was intently watching something in the distance. Those big teeth are a quick reminder of the strength these beautiful creatures have!
I really really really love wolves! They are so elusive and cunning! I love that they are like dogs, but so much more fierce and wild. I was so captivated watching this enclosure to catch even just a glimpse of these wonderful animals!
So just like the Rhino yesterday, I felt that this pig looked like some ancient creature whose drawing is carved into cave walls. Haha! Seriously though, I didn't know that pigs could be so hairy! I actually thought he was pretty cute. :)
I have always thought that Rhinos are such weird looking creatures. They look like something that came from ancient times with their wrinkly skin. I do like watching them though. Their size is so impressive!
So, I know I said on Wednesday that I would be posting pictures from a new zoo the next day, but that obviously didn't happen! Haha! I have been so busy with my puppy! Anyways, over the summer, I had the opportunity to go to Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago! It was amazing and we had a wonderful time! I was able to take a LOT of pictures, so I will be posting these pictures for a while! I hope you enjoy them!
I don't think I had ever seen a beaver before catching a glimpse of this one at the zoo! So neat! :)
Happy Wednesday! I thought the horns alone on this cattle was enough for it to deserve it's own post. These majestic horns conclude the pictures from Potawatomi Zoo in South Bend! Tomorrow I will have pictures from another zoo I visited!! You won't want to miss any! :)
