Okay, not quite an animal fair, but “we went to the animal zoo” doesn’t really rhyme very well..
But, yes, last weekend James and I went with his parents to Edinburgh Zoo. I’ve been looking forward to a trip since the pandas Tian Tian and Yang Guang arrived about a year ago. We were booked in for the 4:30 tour around their enclosures so they were almost the last animals we saw on our visit. We had plenty of time to see nearly all of the other animals – two favourites of mine were the sun bears and the leopard.
Having a nice big yawn!
Yes I did check it was a Jaguar not a Leopard.
We also loved watching the Rhinos have a great play fight in their water pit before chasing each other around the mud like puppies!
And then it was time for the pandas – Yang Guang (the boy) was having a lovely nap, while Tian Tian (the girl) was up and about.
