On Safari

We stopped at the Denver Zoo last Wednesday to marvel at their feeding schedules; let's see what else was there...

Is there anything cuter on the face of the earth than a baby giraffe?
OK. Maybe a baby elephant...

Beautiful cheetah! One of my greatest treats in life was playing with a cheetah cub that was being hand-reared, in the house, by a friend's friend who was a gamekeeper. What a feisty little person he was - and what sharp claws!

I do hate zoos though - especially when I see how little Bo Peep hates being confined and is so desperate to be free, which she hopefully will be soon. I don't mind "zoos" that do good conservation work and run necessary breeding programmes but otherwise I have a serious problem with them.

Such beautiful creatures. I do worry about the larger ones being in captivity though, even though I enjoy looking at them, I can't help but wonder........

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Leslie,

I love elephants, giraffes and most especially... lions!


Hi Vanilla!

You got to play with a cheetah cub? I'm so jealous. ;o)

Zoos hurt my heart but I see the good of them. The animals are well cared for, never hungry, they have medical care and they are safe.
But... they are not free.
It's such a wicked paradox.


Hello Suburbia,

The only ones I can't stand are the bats.
Ew.
*shudder*

I enjoy seeing the rest... especially the big ones!

I absolutely love the polar bear.

Wanderlust Scarlett said...

Guillaume,

Isn't he great?
He said, "I have a stick!", and he played with it for a while.
