Two weeks ago we went on a trip to Cologne in Germany. There are a lot of awesome things to do when over there, and one of the highlights was the Cologne Zoo. Here are some pictures I made while I was there.
Even though it’s a city zoo (and therefore has limited space), the Cologne Zoo was really spacious and had a great variation of animals. These camels are immediately at the entrance. Camels are so cool!
Up next were the meercats. These little guys were very busy foraging while a few of them stood on the lookout for enemies. I love how they sit on their butts and hold those tiny little paws in front of them!
I honestly think cappibaras are the best animals. Ever. They’re giant spiky guinea pigs! I just want to pet their big snouts. This guy was enjoying a nap in the sun while the rest of his family was munching on some grass.
The zoo has a big elephant troupe (I think they had at least seven), and two of them are still calves (I think one was about three, the other five years old). This is the youngest, who was still a bit clumsy and kept missing his body when trying to give himself a sand-bath.
