Two weeks ago on a lazy Sunday I felt like going to the Zoo. I had slept too long, so it had already been after noon…in other words too late to take the train to Munich to enjoy a full day with the animals. I may have been a little grumpy, when suddenly at three o‘ clock b. called and asked me to go to the Zoo, NOW. His family was driving by car to Munich anyway, so we could hitch a ride and take the subway to the Zoo. We had only two hours (had I refused to go there before because we weould have only had some hours???), but we enjoyed those to teh fullest. It was so much fun to go there spontaneously, even more fun than a planned visit could have ever been.
First we visited the petting zoo with its young goats. We were able to pet them, carry them around, whatever we wanted. The goats were so relaxed and seemed to enjoy the contact with humans (the had the chance to leave the petting zoo and back out).
The weather was extraordinary, so I was able to take many wonderful pictures. Here you can see a rhino and even the saliva that drops from its mouth.
Doesn’t he look so very laid-back? I’d like to change places for a sunny afternoon!
Another polar bear at feeding time.
Please, look at his face!
The baby monkeys were so tiny, but also very nosey. Its mother was lazy and didn’t want to look for the baby every second, so she just grab its tail like a leash and so it was aloud to play freely in a limited radius.
It was already time for the Zoo to close when we approched the giraffe enclosure. In the evening sunlight their markings were simpy beautiful. I really love those animals!
