I was a little braver with the snakes here, because I was seperated by the glass. By the way, this might look like two snakes, but it's not. It's one really really long snake!
I got to meet the three elephants who live at the zoo. They have a gigantic day enclosure, and six different paddocks they can spend the night in. They also have their own water hole, and they go for walks each day around the zoo. They looked really happy. In this photo, the elephant is using big thick ropes to scratch her back.
Here is another of the elephants using one of the big huge piles of dirt to give herself a dust shower.This little fella here is one of the cutest sights of the day. He is a red panda, and one of the keepers said we were really lucky to see him out of the tree. Something cool that the lady noticed was how active the animals seemed. Lots of them were running about the place, when she was used to seeing them pretty still.That's it for part one of my trip. I'll show you some more cool sightings tomorrow!:)
