Among Giraffes and Elephants

Friday My Town Shoot Out this week asks:

Does your town have a zoo? Do you have a pet?
Do you own farm animals or live nearby them?
This Friday share with us animal life from your town, city or village.

I don’t have any pets, and there are no farm animals grazing close to where I live – but my town does have a zoo, and the FMTSO question reminds me that I still have unposted pictures from my last visit there (back on my birthday in August).

One of the enclosures at our zoo where you are almost certainly always guaranteed a good show is the African Savannah. Especially the giraffes and the elephants are usually very obliging when it comes to posing for photographs.

  3. Great shots! I do love giraffes.
    When I read the quiestions at the beginning of this post, my first thought was of the rabbits you have mentioned on your blog, I think they live at the cemetery or a park.

  4. Ah yes, Meike. If my mind had not strolled off directly to the zoo, I could have posted about the wild rabbits :) There are plenty of them in the cemetery and they can also be seen in nearby parks, and sometimes in the early morning on the lawns just outside where I live too.

  5. Who couldn't enjoy elephants? As for giraffes they have the most endearing eyelashes of any animal that comes to mind.

  6. No zoo, no farms, but we have our cat and the backyard has a lagoon that has fish, turtles and an alligator.
