June 3rd, 2013 | Let’s Go To The Zoo!

Last week Matt and I went to the Toronto Zoo, mainly to check out the Pandas… which were kinda boring and sleeping behind a tree haha. The trick is to go in the morning if you want to see them, they go to sleep around 11 and stay that way all afternoon. My parents went for a members only event few weeks before so they got some really amazing photos of them playing and stuff. It was kinda a bummer they weren’t that active when we were there, but I’m sure I’ll be back. The Toronto Zoo is common spot to go to year round with my family, but there always is something more magical about it at the start of summer!

All the other animals  were fairly active though because it was a cool day. (I think the Panda’s are just lazy creatures by nature.) We arrived just in time at the Polar Bear’s to watch them be fed which was pretty cool. They were really cute and had a lot of personality!

I think the Gorilla’s are a lot of people’s favourite because theres always a crowd near them. I think it’s because they’re the most interesting to watch because they really are so much like humans. It kinda freaks me out a bit actually so I can’t watch them for too long haha! There was this one who was just sitting there and seriously looked like he was contemplating life. Then there was another who was examining dirt under it’s nails and cleaning them. Then one caring for the kid gorilla. It just trips me out.

I’m really glad though that going to The Zoo has always been such a big part of my life, so many people I know haven’t been since they were kids. (Like Matt, apparently the last time he went was with school as a child.) It really is such a fun place! If you haven’t been to a zoo in a while GO! It’s so much fun!! I can’t wait to go back soon :)

    You got some beautiful pictures from the zoo! I just went to the San Diego Zoo and definitely didn’t get any pictures that good!

      Thanks Yelle! I actually almost deleted that one because I didn’t realize I had caught them cuddling. SO glad I caught myself before I did :)
