Travel // Edinburgh Photo Diary Day 2 -Part 1Thursday, July 17, 2014
Day two in Edinburgh started bright and early as we wanted to try and get up to the Zoo pretty early! By the time we got of the bus and up into the Zoo it wasn't long after 9'o'clock, so the Zoo had just opened and was extremely quiet.
With the Zoo being really quiet when we first went in it had meant that we were able to go round the different animal enclosures in peace and get those perfect shots. It also meant that we were probably able to spend extra time looking at the animals without them being over crowded. We were ended up walking up to the highest part of the Zoo and be able to see the view across Edinburgh without an interruption.
A few of our favourite animals we ended up looking at probably included the Meerkats, Monkeys, Penguins, Pandas, Koalas and other cute tiny animals! We probably spent the majority of our time between the Monkeys and Penguins as they are just so entertaining to watch.
At 12'o'clock we went to see the Pandas, and oh my, they were amazing! The time we went at couldn't have been any more perfect as they were so active! The Panda carers had told everybody to be extra quiet as they think that the female one is pregnant and she may be prone to leaving the shelter. It was amazing just to be able to watch them, especially the moment when the male one accidentally pulled his whole pile of bamboo over his head and on top of him!
We ended up staying till just after 2.30 so we could watch the Penguin walk that even though it passed really quickly, was so adorable! Snowflake, a penguin with a disease also made a little appearance along with 5 other Penguins, which I found out later was actually a lot!
