Camera Critters



Welcome to my contribution to Camera Critters. If you have a photo that you would like to share. Or if you want to see others critters, click on the icon above.



Today is a day at the zoo. I do enjoy going to the zoo. But generally half way through I feel bad. Bad that these lovely animals should not be caged, but at home in the wild. For some (most) this is impossible. We have intruded (encroached) into their territory (homes). When they fight back, they are hunted. Some species are nearly extinct because of hunting, poaching, loss of habitat.



If credible zoo's and/or sanctuaries can help bring back the depleted numbers, I'm all for it.






Giraffe's of course


Handsome peacock



Snowy owl


One eyed alligator and his lovely lady


Tamaron


And my favorite picture of the day

Peek-a-boo tamaron

You do such a great job with your animal pictures, showing them with no bars between them and the camera. I love the giraffes.
