My Christmas gift to both of us was annual passes to the Zurich Zoo - back then, nobody knew what was comming this year. This was our first visit in the icy Swiss cold.
ganz viel süss
Am letzten schönen Herbstwochenende sind wir noch einmal in den Zoo Zürich.
Wir wurden mit Bären auf Nahrungssuche, störrischen Elefanten, einem neugierigen Hyänen-Jungen und süssem Stachelschwein-Nachwuchs belohnt.
our good-by to the snow leopards
We wanted to see the snow leopards before the Zurich Zoo starts its renovation. The weather has been a bit unpredictable lately, so despite the forecast, we gave it a shot... The forecast was accurate and it rained to whole time...
Newborn among the seals
Newborn among the seals: On the 28th of June, a little seal was born, and two weeks later, we admired it.
He is a total cutie, an excellent diver, and also a bit clumsy while swimming!
Playing Gelada baboons and more
On a beautiful day, we went to the zoo. The Gelada baboon young were playfully romping around, and the red ruffed lemurs were busy eating in the Masoala hall. It was an exciting trip, with a slight sunburn as a souvenir.
Walk through the Masoala Hall
A bit of sunshine and lots of animals: T
he spectacled bear foraging for food, the coatis waiting until he was gone, the little panda observing us just as we observed him...
Simply a beautiful morning at the zoo!
First visit of the new year
First visit in 2023! The weather is very changeable these days: first it was okay, then nice and sunny, and in the end it was wet and windy...
The animals were also rather sluggish, understandable. I would also prefer to retreat to a tree and snuggle into my fluffy fur!
Snow in the Zoo
Again, we were incredibly lucky, and we got to see the adorable snow leopard cubs being fed.
Ruckus in the Lewa Savanna
Beautiful weather lured us to the zoo. We had lunch at the Lewa Savanna and were able to observe it.
Tiang Tang and Snow Leopard Cubs
The tred pandas are now three: Ting Tang has been busy exploring her new surroundings. During her rounds, she was watched by her colleagues up in the trees.
Birthday visit to the Zoo
At my birthday we visited the zoo for a short time periode. The animals must have heared about it, then they were particularly active!
Dusk at the Zoo
We love the zoo night: at dusk in the zoo implies a lot more activity of the animals!
Wolves in a different way
Today, the wolves were in the enclosure of the tiger - and we were lucky to be in to zoo too!
Winter magic at Zoo Zurich
We don't get snow very often in the "lowlands", so we quickly packed our camera and headed to the zoo to admire our favorite animals in the snow.
Museum Night at Zoo Zürich
We spent a few short hours during twilight at the Zurich Zoo.
A little bit of Zoo before the Rain starts
This summer, the weather was unpredictable and often rainy... Today, we were lucky to take advantage of the few hours of "sun" and visit the zoo.
Nibble, nibble, little mouse... Who is nibbling there?
Interestingly, we always manage to observe some animals during feeding time. This time, we were able to see the otters, although not while they were eating, but playing instead.
We had a wonderful autumn day at Zoo Zurich. Luckily, we were able to watch the snow leopards being fed and there was plenty of animal activity going on.
First visit to the newly opened Lewa Savanna and we were very lucky:
The rhinos, giraffes, and zebras were very close!
