Zebras at Hope Zoo

Zebras at Hope Zoo
I had the pleasure of viewing the three zebras now resident at the Hope Zoo. They were in their "stable" out of sight until they heard the voices of  children and they cautiously came out to see what was going on.

The two larger ones approached the fence to about a distance of about six to ten metres, then their curiosity seemed to be satisfied.
The two larger zebras went back to privacy while the smallest zebra cropped the short grass.  It was only then that I composed myself to take a photograph of it.

Another new experience for me was stopping by the enclosure for the Woodland Duck and the Mandarin Duck. They are lovely to watch.

Sukey the monkey was quite friendly today and performed acrobatic displays.
