Zoo Preview

Tonight I will just give a preview of some of the pictures that I took today at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney.

Sleeping Koala - Sydney Zoo - Taronga Zoo - Koala at ZooOne of the first exhibits I visited was the Koalas. They were napping in the warm weather.

Flowers at the Zoo - Taronga Zoo - Sydney Zoo - Flower CentersI took pictures of flowers too, zoos are a good place to take flower pictures. There are almost always a broad variety of flowers at the zoo.

Giraffe at Taronga Zoo - Animal Skyscraper - Giraffe and Skyscrapers - Taronga ZooHere a towering Giraffe joins the skyline of Sydney.

Zoo with a View - Sydney Harbour - Opera House - Harbour Bridge - Taronga ZooThe Taronga Zoo is a Zoo with a View. There are many places where you get a nice view of Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge.

Yawning Crocodile - Salt Water Crocodile - Sydney Zoo - Taronga ZooMy mouth is starting to mimic this Salt Water Crocodile. I am starting to yawn as I am tiring quickly after a long day. What Big Teeth this crocodile has. Actually it is cooling off as it radiates heat through the mouth.

Sumatran Tiger - Sleeping Tiger - Taronga Zoo - Sydney Zoo - Snoozing TigerI need to be doing the same at this Sumatran Tiger. It is time to get some shut eye.

I hope you enjoyed this preview. I will share more pictures soon.

  1. These are wonderful pictures, Steven. The light is just beautiful: it does make me yearn for Summer, here in the heart of a British winter. Can’t wait to hear more!

    Holy, ya you really get good views back to the city from there. I’m not a big zoo visitor, I’m very conflicted about animals in captivity. We have been to the one in San Diego and the animals typically have generous quarters there. Geez Louise, that Croc is scary looking. I’d be hesitant to swim in any lake or pond there. We met a couple on our European trip from Australia who lived on a lake in Australia that had a tributary back to the ocean. They were telling us about a type of shark that can live in fresh water OR salt water and they’d see the odd fin in the lake. You wouldn’t get me skiing out there.
