ZOOOOOOO! 9 June 2009

I love zoo trips. I really love them. And I definitely love zoo trips that involve a boat trip to get to the zoo.

I didn´t really expect too much from Perth Zoo, but oh my god it was amazing!

We saw all the native aussie animals, kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, emus, other things that look like emus but that aren´t actually emus, koalas, tasmanian devils, little penguins. The weather was quite cool so the animals were moving around. They had an amazing orangutan enclosure with big mummas and the most gorgeous baby orangutans ever! there were tigers and lions. But my favourite of all was the elephant enclosure. We went to watch the elephant talk and saw THE MOST IMPRESSIVE DISPLAY EVER! The elephants did everything on demand, raise their left foot, raise their right foot, wave theri trunk. Of course none of this was in a cruel way, but in a way that allows the zoo keepers to keep and eye on the elephants and check them thoroughly. But the best of all was not when the elephant squirted the audience on demnad, but when the elephant did a handstand. OH YES! AN ELEPHANT DOING A HANDSTAND. It´s something I thought i would never ever ever see in all my life, but I did, and Gwil saw it too and it was amazing. The day at the zoo was a great one!
