Going To The Zoo – Berlin Style

It’s Monday, so let’s look at animals!

And yes, I went to another zoo.  This would not have seemed so bad had this post not been weeks after my last zoo post (and aquarium post).  But we don’t have zoos in Newfoundland, so anything other than a bear or a moose is pretty exotic.

Plus, PANDA!

Look at how happy he is with his frozen fruit-stuff!

Yeah, that’s my first panda bear.  There may be glass between us, but he’s still fluffy and cute and I just want to hug him! 

Also fluffy and cute are:

Polar Bears!

Of course, I would be more hesitant to hug these guys.  We even saw Knut (the no-longer-baby polar bear that there was a big fuss about years ago), but he was in his own separate area.

There were lots of other animals, such as:

This is for Jos.

Pygmy hippos!  Look at that little guy just lying there in the shade.  I took this picture for my friend who loves hippos.

And, of course, I got to see something that I’d been wanting to see for a long time:

penguinpenguinpenguin!

Lots of penguins!

It wasn’t as warm as it had been in New York so the animals were more active here.  The Berlin Zoo was also smaller than the Bronx Zoo (as is probably every other zoo in the world), so it was easier to navigate and see what you wanted to see.  The Zoo was actually a nice size – large enough to have lots of interesting animals, but small enough for you to see everything in an afternoon (or less).

They also have a really cool Elephant Gate.
