A visit to the Western Plains Zoo

The meerkats are always good for a laugh and those at Western Plains Zoo at Dubbo didn't disappoint. And we weren't disappointed by the zoo either - a very impressive display of large animals in healthy living conditions, great crowd control measures, beautiful grounds and fantastic weather as well.
We had a great day, although a lot of the animals seemed to be snoozing in the warmth of the afternoon sun. Even the Galapagos Tortoises were sleeping on their heated sand bed and reluctant to move to eat.
I found myself intrigued by feet.

Hi Boobook
You are in good company, examining the feet of these creatures. It is one of the ways the biologists classify related animals.

G'day Boobook,
Nice one, sounds like a great spot to visit. I particularly enjoyed the Meerkat shot - so different from most pictures of Meerkats standing and keeping lookout.
