Southern California Trip - Third Day in San Diego
We began by listening to a concert by three New Guinea Singing Dogs. We had just entered and I got this nice picture but didn't get the video cranked up in time. However, you can click here to listen to a short YouTube video of a chorus.
We saw all the classic favorites: elephants, zebras, lions, tigers, and a hippo. We happened by the hippo exhibit just as he/she was taking a dip in the pool and then coming over to the underwater window to get up close and personal with some kids. Well, here, just play the video below.
We also saw the pandas although not the preemie that was delivered Caesarian last month. We did see the male who sat with his back to all of us which the guide said was not unusual. I did get a bit of view of the face when we were high above the exhibit on a tour bus.
You can read more about the zoo by clicking here. If you really want to see something cool, check out the animal live cams. Here is the link to the Koala Cam. Note the grass moving in the live feed but no motion from the star. Apparently they sleep about 22 hours a day. All that eucalyptus makes them sleepy.
There are many more photos in the Picasa album which you can view by clicking here.
