Yesterday was a good day to visit the Melbourne Zoo, cool, but sunny.
The tram system here works a treat, and with one easy connection, I arrived at my destination.
There were lots of family groups there, with the whole age range represented.
The zoo grounds are well set out, but I’m a map challenged person, so didn’t find the complimentary offering of much use. My son helpfully sent me an SMS to say “Don’t worry, when it’s closing time, they let the lions out. You’ll soon find a way out.” I used to think he was quite a nice young man.
Like most of the zoo-goers, I was charmed by the antics of the primates. Looking around, all I could see were smiling faces; how wonderful!
Here is a tiny taste of some of these cheeky critters.
And, here is the alpha male of the gorilla clan. I’m not mucking around with this big fellow.
