Gone! And a Trip

Okay first off, I did finish my next project and I did say I would post it today.  There is just one tiny little problem.  My camera.  It. Is. Gone.  I looked everywhere I could possibly think of, but it is still missing.  What the heck.  No camera, no cute picture of my finished project.:(
To make up for it, here are some photos from a when I took my niece to the zoo.  Luckily I got them off the camera before it mysteriously disappeared.

One of the elephants enjoying the misting thingies.  It was about 106 degrees that day which explains why this elephant was ignoring the kids throwing carrots on the other side of the habitat.

This jaguar looked really hot and bored.  Poor thing.
Polaroid
I forgot what this bird is called, but it’s really pretty.
Polaroid
I had never seen more pelicans.  They showed up in the oddest places.  This one was floating in the pond next to another one that was full of all these small friendly looking turtles.  I discovered why they looked so friendly when I reached my hand to one and it tried to eat my finger.
Polaroid
Speaking of shelled reptiles, we were there just in time to watch these tortoises eat lunch.
Polaroid
I spotted this bunny nearby.  Yep, that’s tortoise food it’s munching on.
Polaroid
This is the closest we got to this stork.
Polaroid
I can’t remember what these are called, but they sure are cute.
Polaroid
These turkeys were near the petting zoo.  The male one didn’t seem too happy to see us, but the female one really showed her displeasure.  She pecked a little girl nearby. 
Polaroid
This goat was waiting patiently to go back inside.  His home was being cleaned.
Polaroid
Here’s his friend.  Great smile for a goat.
Polaroid
I caught this bald eagle in the act.  Just kidding, he was just stretching out his wings.
Polaroid
Awww, how cute.
Polaroid
It’s a black swan, I didn’t even know they existed.
Polaroid
The sign said these were “warty pigs”.  The wart hogs were are the farther side of the park.  We would have visited them, but it was too far to go in the heat.
Polaroid
Here’s a pair of emus.  What is the plural form of “emu”?
Polaroid
Of course we had to check out the prairie dogs.  This was just before we got stopped by the lady at the lost and found.  My niece had left her bag on a bench and when we went back for it, it was gone.  We filed a report and about 20 minutes later someone had turned it in, so the lady there came to find us.  My guess is that whoever found it on the bench tried to immediately take it to the lost and found place and couldn’t find it.  We probably got there first.
Polaroid
Anyway, near the prairies dogs was this pair of mountain lions.  They were really hard to spot.  They were is a large crack in the rocks, just escaping the heat and catching some ZZZZs.
Polaroid
Just got to love the flamingoes.  My niece didn’t believe me when I told her because they looked white.  If I remember correctly, flamingoes are pink because of a reaction to a sort of algae that they eat.  I guess that stuff doesn’t grow well in Arizona or something.
