(More) Beautiful Animals at the Zoo

Some more of my favorite animals at the San Diego Zoo.

Asian Elephant

Visayan Warty Pig- reminded me of Pumbaa. Which is why I loved seeing the little guys below:

Meerkats! Like Timon. Here they are together.

Tapin (Above and Below.)

Polar bear taking a nap.

Gerenuk Antelope eating leaves off the tree. Amazing balance!

The Gondola

A Komodo Dragon. They can grow up to 10 ft long, weigh 176 lbs and live for 50 years!

Albino Diamondback Rattlesnake

Brown Tree Snake

An arch at the Reptile Museum

Bird of Paradise

Palm Tree and Coral tree.


  1. Those are some beautiful pictures and animals! The antelope is a great one it looks so funny. And the elephant is a great angle it looks so clear and huge!

  2. the antelope is the cutest!!!

    And the birds of paradise, ahhh, takes me back to our engagement....and Mexico. I love those!

  3. Thanks Sarah! I loved the animals so much. I can't ever remember being to a zoo, although I think I might have been to one in Calgary AB when I was really little. It was just so much fun and I can't wait to go back and see all the animals we missed.

    FM- I got a video of that antelope too, it really was pretty neat how it balanced. It was in that position for a really long time. Just standing there and eating.

    Beki- welcome to my site! I loved the polar bear too. I loved how it was using its paw to shade its eyes. :)

  4. Meerkats are my favorite! I could sit and watch them forever. Probably because they remind me of cats, very organized, industrious cats.

  5. Sorry I could not figure out how to enable blog update notification on the guard the home blog. I'm still working on it!
