Hamilton Zoo

Hamilton Zoo is a fairly average zoo. I am not going to try and glamorize it. My family and I went there today and it was cooler than normal because our trip coincided with about three types of the animal’s feeding times. We saw the Brown Capuchin Monkeys being fed, which was quite amazing how resourceful they were when they unscrewed the caps off bottles of nuts (that sounds a bit weird) and peeling/smashing corn on branches three metres up: IMG_0216                                     And the chimps that fought over cobs of corn and apples:IMG_0223                                         It was strange when one monkey wasn’t allowed outside yet it was sitting and staring forlornly out one of the windows:IMG_0222                                   We also saw the pack of African Hunting Dogs (also known as the African Painted Dogs) being fed chickens:IMG_0228                                       There are numerous other animals at the zoo such as rhinoceroses, giraffes, lizards, emus, tigers, and lots more. Here’s some of them: IMG_0240 IMG_0236 IMG_0238

I had a pretty good time at the zoo, and maybe I’ll see some more interesting stuff next time I go. That’s all from me for now...
