I Love Going to the Zoo

The Beijing Zoo... The main attraction at this zoo are the lovable pandas so for my friend Phoenix, here are some pictures of the pandas along with a tiger and a fox. Oh, don't let me forget the crazy monkey picture. i was standing at the window with another lady and this monkey attacked the glass in front of her. Scared the Bejesus out of me.

This zoo is pitiful. The animals are not housed properly. All the attention goes to the pandas. Our tour guide said that we "rent" pandas from China. I think he meant "on loan" anyhoo, they even recycle the panda poo! more on the poo subject later....

That fox is gorgeous. Actually we and the rest of the world do rent pandas from China. I think it is something like half a million per year for a breeding pair and if a cub is born, there is a couple hundred thousand 'baby tax' and ownership of the cub is retained by China.

I have never heard of renting them. we call them on loan...well that gives a bang for the buck doesn't it?
Pandas at my favorite. I haven't been to the zoo in years. It's on my list of places to go, one a little closer. Lol. Definitely one with pandas :) great pictures :)

I had to go see them! we have them in Washington DC but supposedly they are never out...
Some good pictures. The fox is beautiful, but it looks like its blind in one eye? And the tiger lying there is very nice. Pandas are such majestic creatures....
Monkeys are crazy.... and smart. TG for the glass or watch out... I've got some monkey no glass stories real stories! lol
