Its lunch time at Blackpool Zoo for the Penguins, they however must be fast at downing the fish as the Seagulls are primed to swoop down from above and devour the lot. Is this survival of the fittest or just the most daring.
Having managed to fend off the Seagulls and devour their lunch the Penguins straight away set off on a post lunch swim around to pool. I guess the general rule of waiting an least an hour after eating before going for a swim doesn’t apply to penguins!
Just another normal day at the office. The giraffes seen here seem to be taking everything in their stride. As you can see they just do their own thing (chew, chew, chew) and are not bothered in the slightest by any of the human visitors to the viewing gallery within their house. If only we ourselves could be so relaxed and chilled.
A family of Dwarf Mongoose cuddled together, now this is what one may call shared bodily warmth. Is this not the cutest family group you have ever scene. They typically live in groups of about a dozen plus individuals led by the parents. Everybody takes turns to forage for food and take care of the babies of the group, hence they being known as babysitters. It must be really cozy being right in the middle of that pile. In the second half of the video they become more far more active. How many can you count? http://www.blackpoolzoo.org.uk
Meeting Ronaldo the Macaw at Blackpool Zoo was certainly one of the highlights of the visit. They have some wonderfully colored plumage and weigh in at around 1200-1300 grams. Surprisingly they have a bite pressure far exceeding that of humans (approx 160lbs) on the order of 1000 lbs.
Some footage of a Meerkat doing what it does best – standing on its hind legs and having a look around. It this case the Meerkat is having a look around its interior enclosure at Blackpool Zoo.
