Melbourne zoo, always a nice idle amble

Melbourne zoo is in two parts, one of which is a fair way out of town (Healesville) and focuses on Australia’s impressively weird native fauna, and the other a more traditional zoo near the city.  This has lions and tigers and gorillas and such, all very nicely housed in large and modern enclosures, participating in world conservation breeding programmes, and educating everyone to heck about the critters.     This holiday, it was the town zoo’s turn.  A pleasant way to spend an afternoon, although since it is mid winter at the mo’, many of the more tropically inclined creatures were huddling in warm corners under blankets.
