Toranga Zoo

The weather service was off again, so I made it out to the zoo. It is about the same size as the Houston Zoo. It was a pretty good time. I took tons of photos, but I think many are out of focus, as the animals seemed very active.

A funny thing... Taronga Zoo keeps leopard seals, and there were a ton of small children scurrying about. The leopard seal was bobbing up and down in the water keeping track of many of them. The kids laughed and asked what it was doing. I didn't want to mention that they were about the same size and coloring as an emperor penguin, seal, or full-grown adelie... That is the leopard seals main staple. Ok, it will eat krill if it has to.
