Lions, Tigers and Bears, OH MY!!

We saw these and many more animals at Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia, SC this past weekend. I had a free weekend stay and passes to the zoo and gardens. I was really impressed. Sadly, much better than the Birmingham Zoo! As expected, I went overboard with the photos. This isn't even half of them...

Lions

TigerBear
Brad and a gator. He loves them! Baboon
Giraffe
Galapagos tortoises. They were as big as the boulders behind them!
Flamingos
Can't remember this bird's name but love his plumeage!
Elephant

Jellyfish
Hippo
These gorillas would sit right at the glass windows. Check out this one's pink lip!
Enjoying some lettuce. They were throwing carrots at each other!
Meerkat Manor!
Lemurs
Koala

Koala baby catching some zzzzzz's.
Python. This glass reflected really badly so I didn't take many pictures inside.
Piranha - check out his teeth!
Parakeets (I think - lots of birds!)
Ostrich
Monitor lizard
Wallaby
Some kind of monkeys. These guys were swinging all over the place!
Toucan Sam and his brother Froot Loop! ; )
This sea lion was putting on a show. He was such a ham!!
