So as Kongo heads out the door to the zoo to visit the animals in the late afternoon light Mrs. Kongo says, "You just keep taking the same pictures of the same old monkeys. Pretty soon they'll be saying, 'Hey, Kongo, where have you been?" The same old monkeys? This was lost on Kongo who then became determined to avoid his favorite spots on the Monkey Trail. Coming up from Fern Canyon he did spy this old gal but (for the information of Mrs. Kongo!) this is NOT A MONKEY. It's a orangatan. He did see some other cool animals who seemed more active than they are during the day. Hippos, koalas at their newly constructed enclosure, and a couple of sexy sagos. Read on.
For the information of Mrs. Kongo, this is NOT A MONKEY.
This young hippo was doing laps in his large pool and kept his eye on Kongo every time he passed by. I’m sure he was thinking that the little monkey would make a great snack before dinner.
Okapi’s are cool!
This is not a monkey either.
A koala peeks around a tree holding up her nest in the new Outback Koala exhibit. Koalas are not monkeys either.
A male King Sago Palm appears ready to party.
Sitting next to the male Sago Palm was this alluring female sago plant ready to receive pollen.
The San Diego Zoo is open till 9 PM during the summer months. It’s a great time to visit. Much fewer guests make it easier to get a good view of the animals and you can park up close to the entrance.
Travel safe. Have fun. Be nice to monkeys.
