A Zoo in Winter

Exactly one year ago I visited a zoo in the winter time. However, it was a hot day and I can just imagine what it would have been like to visit the Sao Paulo Zoo in the summertime.

The post that I wrote that day was titled Anteater to Zebra.

Tonight I will share some more pictures to fill in some of the space between A and Z.

Just like many cats it likes to sit in the sun. I really like this picture with the nice shadow.

These tortoises are big and can weigh over 500 pounds.

These come before Anteater to Zebra, so I guess we will just call them giant tortoises.

I hope you enjoyed this trip to the zoo.
