The animals seemed to be totally worn out after the school holiday traffic, but they were all out working on their tans, so I was able to get some great photos. The ones of the blissed-out big cats are my favourite.
Here's another much smaller, blissed out kitty. This is our cat Kipper helping Maddy with her drawing yesterday. He follows the kids everywhere.
We really are so lucky having Auckland Zoo on our doorstep. It has a fantastic array of animals and they are all so well cared for.
This is one of the tiger cubs that were born last year.
This emu was having a major bad hair day! I know how he feels sometimes!
This is one of the Asian otter brothers.
And finally a Tuatara.
The girls had such a great time (and so did I).
