This zoo is big. You need a full day to walk through it, at least (and we went over around midday, which was too late, we missed a large part of it)
They look so cute
I can understand why you're not allowed to lean over the railing... you'd just take them home >_>
I confess I forgot to record which kind of monkey this is.
The title says it all.
Just look at that wrinkly face!
Critically endangered, and probably extinct soon because people keep butchering them for their parts. Nature seems cruel and unyielding (yes, humans are part of 'nature')
I personally don't really like Gorillas, nor do I really see the appeal of them other than "their face'.
Which is expressive.
Like this one.
Almost as if it's a furry woodland animal O_o
Of course, Artis de Partis came with.
I understand those silly signs that point to a million other places in the world, but why *just* L.A. Zoo?
This made no sense to me.
Perspex is an unforgiving barrier, generating a delicious but nearly impossible to correct for graduated directional blur.
That's why I simply stuck my lens directly onto the aquarium and waited for the jellyfish to "swim" in view.
Worked reasonably well I think ^_^

I would have shown you the seahorse itself if not for a horrible bit of Perspex getting in the way of things...
Seriously, is this beauty or what? It looks like a goldsmith worked overtime to create the ornament that is this old Arapaima's head.
A slightly different angled view of the same surrealistically beautiful 'decoration'...
I used to have these in a tank at home when I was a kid.
They were cool =)
Catfish are funny. There are a zillion-and-three species, but they all have funny bristles. This one funnier than most =)
I guess that's why we call them monitors...
There is a reason we don't associate with alligators very often: they are pure evil.
Just look at that guy! He's just lying there waiting to get hungry, so he can eat your baby.
