Lions and Tigers and Giraffes - oh my!

Where's Cinnaspy in the picture above?? Today, we went to the Metro Toronto Zoo with my grandpawrents.  It was a beautiful day and we got to see many interesting creatures!

Below is one of the first animals that we saw - a rhinoceros (can you believe that mom had to type that word in THREE times before she got the correct spelling!!)
Below is a statue in honor of one of the zoo's Orangutans
Here's a real live Orangutan baby - isn't it cute!
Heyyy there mister tiger what's for lunch?? Not me.
This Hippo was enjoying his pool very much - almost as much as Agatha & Archie enjoyed theirs!
This is a picture of a butterfly in the butterfly garden that landed on this lady's hat!  Her hat actually says U.S. Secret Service - too funny!
...ah, the strong silent type...
What would a zoo be without elephants...
Check out the tongue on this giraffe - I would not recommend sharing your frosty paws with this dude!
All in all it was a great day with great weather.  Believe it or not we walked just over 6 miles (10 km) as the zoo is so large and spread out.  
We had more fun than a cage full of monkeys!
...tomorrow we get to meet Momo & Pinot! Stay tuned!....
