January 29, 2007 - My friend Shana and I spent four hours
walking around this is large and well-kept zoo. It is worth the visit.
The flamingos were very colorful. :)
This is an elegant pitta.
This attractive peacock look-alike uttered an amazing "woo-hoo" sound when it chirped.
Two photos of an Alaskan brown bear.
This hippopotamus looked so lazy. :)
A cape clawless otter.
On a side note, Shana and I recommend the Footsie Wootsie machines
throughout the San Diego Zoo. For a quarter, one enjoys
about 60 seconds of major vibrations on one's foot that feels very much like a foot massage! :p)
I forgot the specific name for these pigs, but I'll just call them "salt and pepper pigs" for the time being. :)
The four adjacent photos show a secretary bird.
So pretty! The bird seemed very social and energetic and walked all around its area,
as if it was intentionally seeking
attention from human visitors.
