Buffalo Zoo - September 2010

I have always loved Animals. I was the type of kid who would find an animal outside and bring it home. I got a kitten trick or treating one year... We went out for candy of course and brought home more then we thought. 

I have to admit my mom was very open to animals, she may have said no at first but she almost always caved. She always told me I would bring home a skunk if she let me.

That said I think animals are amazing, you have no idea what they are thinking but sometimes they do something that is so human like or funny and you just wish you knew what they were thinking. My Cat's have 3 of the biggest personality ever. But I found animals at the Zoo give just as much sometimes. 

Take this polar bear. It was like he was putting on a show. He would walk back and forth, the dive in his pool. Then pop his head up at the side. Backstroke, side stroke and dive again. It was hilarious.

I got some great pics of this guy just hanging out.

We walked up to the Hyenas and I just said wonder where they are? Then 2 come galloping down to the glass.
They really look like Big Dogs, but they have jaws of steel, as said by the sign on their enclosure.

The Lemurs are always funny. You never know what they are going to be doing. This time it was time for Lemur exercising.. at least that's what it looks like to me..

The Monkeys were so funny. There were 2 T-Shirts in their cage, one of the monkeys put a shirt on and was jumping around, Unfortunately I did not get any really good one;s but here is what I did get.

There is a monkey in there. The camera focused on the fence and not the monkey

Another monkey was trying to grab a stick through the fence and drag it in..

By far the best was the Gorilla's. The Glass is thick for obvious reasons, and not the clearest, but I think I got  a couple of the best pictures ever..

It look's like he is looking right at me

Another great visit to the zoo..

Til next time
