Houston Zoo

An older collection of photographs, from 2012 when I visited the Houston Zoo with my best friend, Dani! 01-IMG_0173

An antelope-type.


And maybe a hornbill bird? I think I actually took notes for this one, but don’t have them now.  Please feel free to identify in the comments!  Identified! It’s a Shoe-billed Stork, courtesy of matthias1982, of the ever-informative and really awesome wild life: travel and nature photography.


Flamingos!  I love how they always arrange themselves so nicely.


Dani posing for the camera!


They had a baby elephant!  It was so adorable – we stood and watched it for a good ten minutes.


The Komodo dragon came up the glass and posed for me – she’s quite the show-off!


They also had Blanco, one of only 14 white alligators in existance.  Tick-tock, tick-tock.


Dani really connected with the chimpanzees.  They sat made faces at each other for quite a while.


Two rhinos sharing a yummy treat.


A giraffe lazing in the hot Texas sunshine.


And, of course, a bald eagle.


Finally, a gopher or prairie dog enjoying his afternoon snack. I have to admit, I’m a big fan of veggies and this doesn’t look that bad.

I really enjoyed the Houston Zoo – there was a wide variety of animals to see, there was lots of strolling around, and all the animals look quite contented in their enclosures.  Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area!
