Continuing our Idaho adventure, we visited Zoo Boise, which was full of sweet animals and great photo opportunities.
First up, we met a delightful little meerkat who happily posed for my camera.
We also got to see a hilarious, raggedy Sloth Bear eat her breakfast. I just loved her crazy fur and insanely long claws!
From there we came across two fantastic bird species; the Stellar's Sea Eagle, whose massive size still haunts me...
And the Southern Ground Hornbill, who sported the most fabulous eyelashes I've ever seen!
There was a giant tortoise with a beautiful round shell, who gazed dolefully in our direction.
And we decided to let sleeping lions lie...
I gave an underwater shot a try with this adorable rock hopper penguin, as he darted to and fro in his large aquarium.
And we enjoyed watching this sweet little Capybara bask in his enclosure. Someday, maybe we'll get to see one in the wild!
A beautiful giraffe took a stoic walk about the grounds, showing off his lovely patches as he wound through the tall trees.
One of the last creatures we had the pleasure of witnessing was the African Wild Dog. A large gang of them were running in a pack together, making lots of noise and having a blast. Their coats are just stunning!
Lastly, we greatly enjoyed a long zebra encounter. We can't get enough of these striped beauties!
Check out the muzz fuzz on this guy! He also had a big smile for us, otherwise known as the flehmen response. And finally, his carousel doppelganger couldn't be left out, as we wrapped up a fun day at the zoo!
