zoo! (assorted animals)

we went to the zoo and i of course snapped a zillion pictures. mainly, we went to see the white tiger, and the white lions, but seeing all the animals up close was great. because it was a monday, there really weren't that many other visitors, so it was all very nice and peaceful, and the animals were mostly having a good time sleeping in the sun and being friendly with the visitors.

i've split the pictures up a bit..


zebra mungoose, hehe! i was all "hey!" and it was all "oh, hey. oh, alright. i'll pose for ya if you hurry up and snap already."


this is for moonriddengirl: guinea pigs!


how pissed off does this wallaby look? haha. he was all "i will punch you out if you get any closer, bitch!"



such a cute camel. it obviously loved the attention and kept sitting just by the fence so that visitors could come and pet him between the ears. (not that i dared to, haha. i'm a wuss. i can only deal with cats, really.)




huuuuuuuuge horns on this one!




cuuute llamas (that didn't spit, thank goodness, even though i was bugging them in the middle of dinner.)

Eeee! Guinea pigs! Does *every* zoo in Sweden have guinea pigs? Because, really, I don't think any do in the US....

i'm not sure, but i think it's because they know kids like to see them playing around, and they can set up cute houses and such for them. this was a much larger area than at skansen, and probably 10-12 guinea pigs. soooo cute!!

i've never ever seen a zebra mungoose before, but i'm completely taken with it. what a weird, cute, silly looking thing!

i also -adore- the first camel picture. fantastic color and composition.

sorry, didn't check the spelling - it's zebra mongoose, not mungoose. :) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herpestidae)

they were very cute - the information sign said that this type of mongoose mainly lives in africa, and has been known to try and attack jackals! (like, a pack of mongooses will gang up on a jackal)

the camel was so cool. i like that picture too. :)
