Philly Zoo


We celebrated my husband's last day of summer by going to the Philadelphia Zoo yesterday. You couldn't ask for a better day, mid 70's, no humidity. 

The coati below woke up from his nap for a second. 



This pied tamarin looks a little devilish to me...


Cute, fluffy titi monkey from Bolivia.

A lady ostrich struts by.


Giant river otter snacks on a fish.


Little burrowing owl used to teach children.



I could watch the prairie dogs all day long.


One of my favorites for their sweet faces, the douc langur.


This yawning Aldabra tortoise can live well over 100 years!


Metallic starling sitting pretty.

Jen, LOVE the photos! The titi monkey reminds me of "Yoda" from Star Wars. And the prairie dogs look like they're having a group hug. Thank you so much for sharing them.
