Pardon the date in the post. As it should make evident, I took these pictures a while back on a visit to Chester Zoo in England. The trip was a fun from what I recollect. Unfortunately it was also cold and shaky hands make for bad photography. So while it was somewhat memorable, it wasn’t all that successful.
Looks like Human aren’t the only ones with dirty habits, as this Great Sumatran Orangutan shows!

A rather sad-eyed Emperor Tamarin
A magnificent (and huge) Great Hornbill, shot through its mesh enclosure
A large Bornean Orangutan just swinging about
A hungry Andean aka Spectacled Bear noshing down on some yummy cucumbers
A straw chewing Radiated Tortoise, out on a stroll
An interestingly spotted Salvador’s Monitor lizard
A rather grumpy looking Baboon, with his beautifully marked blue snout
Still I’ve picked out a few worth publishing from the batch. Certainly a few gems in there I’m happy to add to the collection. Hopefully next time, if there ever is one, I’ll do the Zoo and its “Islands” justice.

I wish I had more to say on the visit. But time and other factors nudge me away from reminiscing. So hopefully these few shots speak for themselves.
