We're going to the zoo zoo zoo

We are very lucky in Hamilton to have one of the best (we think it's the best) zoos in New Zealand and while morally I think there should be no place for zoos in a perfect society most well run modern zoos have an important part to play in conservation and education. You can visit the Hamilton zoo website here
Sunday turned out to be an absolute ripper of a day, perfect blue skies and just enough winter chill in the air to make the 5 km walk around the zoo very comfortable.

HORSEY! (this is a very long running joke between Julia and I which basically consists of her calling every animal she sees a HORSEY! until I'm just about falling on the floor laughing).

Puss puss this is Bob the cat, he's a bobcat...


HORSEY! Actually a kunekune pig

African Hunting Dog

These guys are awesome. Last time we were at the zoo we were lucky enough to be at this enclosure just before the pack of 20 dogs was fed with a whole goat carcass. It was quite a sight and worth taking a trip to the zoo for that alone. Very spectacular.
It was a great trip and at the end we had ice cream, what could be better.
