San Diego Zoo

The San Diego Zoo is a sanctuary for thousands of animals, a landscape of rare plants from all climates and a living classroom that entertains as well as educates. Sometimes the native habitats show animals that are found together in the wild.   These are photos from  a recent visit.

The Galapagos Tortoise exhibit was recently updated for the herd of 17 tortoises including 10 of the original tortoises which are all over 100 years old!

The Siamangs are joined by the Orangutans with plenty of space for aerial antics and objects for play.

The Giant Panda exhibit features the zoo's panda conservation efforts.

Winter is a good time to visit the zoo when many of the animals and birds are more active.
