I’ve noticed that most of my recent images from the Kansas City zoo are almost all from the African area. Because I need to continue to practice with varying light conditions, I thought I’d try a couple of the other areas of the zoo.
The image below is for our reptile lovers. It is a Vietnamese Long-nose Snake. The long nose looks much like the leaves of a bamboo plant. With that nose and green coloring, it stays very well hidden. This snake along with several others can be seen in the Snakes Alive Exhibit.
This next image is of a Von der Decken’s Hornbill. It can be found in Central and Eastern Tanzania, Southeastern Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia. I think he’s quite handsome.
The three guys below are generally very playful but I do see them in this position quit often. They are Asian Small-clawed Otters.
The Asian Small-clawed Otters can been seen in the Tropics Building. OK, so now it’s time to go back outside. I’m sure you’ll know where we’re headed with the image below……
Yup! It’s Australia! When visiting Australian you will actually be in the exhibit with the kangaroos. Some people have thought that they have escaped but they haven’t. Of course, you must stay on the path and not approach them or try to pet them. These are Red Kangaroos which are reported to be the largest of the kangaroos.
Now this next animal always brings a smile to my face. OK, I’ll admit it. I sometimes break out in laughter because of the way in which it looks at me. It kind of looks like it’s smiling too!….. Hey….. You don’t suppose that it’s laughing at me, do you???
This next one is very cool! I don’t get to see him very often. People walk right by it and never see it because it blends into it’s surroundings so well. It just looks like it’s just part of the tree. He doesn’t move and almost always has his eyes closed.
Oh, I almost forgot again! I put an image on FB to see who could identify an animal. Now, I know there is at least one person that got it right…. Gail Degeer knows her animals! I’m sure you’ve all figured it out by now. It is……….
It is very cool because it actually looked at me. It’s never done that before. What a lucky day! Well, I hope you enjoyed a short tour of a couple of the other areas of the zoo. Thanks for coming!
