I want to see the zoo, he said, I want to see the zoo!

Hi everybody!!! For my second day back in Moscow, I went to the zoo!!! (Зоопарк - "Zoopark") The Moscow zoo has almost 6,000 animals!

Of course I had to meet all of the monkeys! One baby mandrill was very eager to meet me.

So cute!

The mandrill family

I could hang out with apes and monkeys all day, they're so much fun to watch.

An orangutan family

Then I went to find some four-legged friends.

A giant, dirty camel

The zebra wasn't interested in meeting me

A reindeer!!

A yak

What a tongue!

I also went to say hi to the birds and bugs!

An angry pelican

Привет, toucan!

Pretty birds


And now, as a big surprise, I'd like to introduce my cousin, Tanya TheMonkey!!! She is very nice and will be joining me on some of my adventures. Here we are in front of a large animal sculpture at the zoo by the same sculpter who designed Moscow's large Christopher Columbus monument.

We had a great time at the zoo together and we're getting ready for another surprise adventure, but we'll keep that secret for another couple of days ;-)
