A Bronx Zoo Menagerie

When you go to the Bronx Zoo and take over 800 pictures, you end up with quite a few nice ones. Here is a bundle of the animals in all their glory the day I went (sadly there were no tigers that weren’t hiding or sleeping too far away to get a nice shot).

Since I enter at the Asia gate, I always catch these guys waking up and eating breakfast in Jungle World.
