Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

1) Animal Carousel. Unfortunately the Giraffe and Tiger do not move up and down.
2) Face to face with a lion! 
3) A Peahen preening her feathers, to impress the eligible bachelors.
4) Don't be Koi with Me Pond. 

A few facts about animals learned yesterday at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo:

*Orangutans are among the most intelligent of apes. The zoo had a orangutan who not only created a tool to pick the locks of their exhibit (to go galavanting around at night!), but cleverly hid this tool in his jawline to conceal it from the zookeepers! 

*Like human fingerprints, zebra stripes are unique to each zebra.

*Only the male of the species is called a Peacock.

1) I just couldn't resist photographing the peafowl in the flowers. 
2 & 3) In the Butterfly & Insect Pavilion, you get to walk among the butterflies.
4) Peafowl in love.

The End.
