Gorillas Eating

Happy Halloween!

These gorillas were being pretty silly!  I especially like the one in the background that is stuffing his face with food.  Hahaha!

Snow Monkey

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!

Like I said yesterday, I enjoy seeing the wide variety of monkeys!  These monkeys had a little baby that was nursing from its mother.  The mother looked like she could use some more sleep!  Haha!

Monkeys and Red Panda

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.  :)

Baby Monkey Playing with Mother

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.  :)

This beautiful snow monkey was wandering through the enclosure.  He seemed to be looking for something or maybe someone.  I was shocked when he looked straight at me.  He is stunning!

Nursing Baby Monkey

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!

I LOVE otters!  They are just too cute!  We spent a lot of time watching this otter swim and play while the other one slept.  :)

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!  :)

Ankole Cattle

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!  :)

I really couldn't come up with a category that fit for these random animals.  Maybe we can go with the fact that they all have fur.  Haha.  Anyways, I hope your day is as laid back as this red panda.  :)

I just have a few random pictures left to post from the Potawatomi Zoo in South Bend.  So I am starting off the week with a collection of birds of various sizes.  :)

Lazy Tigers

The tigers were all starting to feel the heat of the day coming.  Even the one that had been standing watch was starting to yawn.  :)
