Talking Omaha Zoo! LOTS of Pics. Fishies and more.

Sooo I went to the zoo today. Yeah.

As always, I love sharing my pics on this forum!

Um.. Yeah. First thing I saw when I came in!


Same penguin, same position:


Clownfish! :)


Jellyfish!


Upside-down jelly...fish... these guys looked like they failed at life. Pretty though.




My absolute FAVORITE aquarium pic!


And he just looked so fat and sassy he needed a pic!


Koi


This Rhino drove me INSANE. No matter what way I walked to take a picture, he moved his butt the same way. My friend was just waiting for Ace Ventura to pop out. (PLEASE get that reference!)


Another movie reference: Tell me the monkey on the bottom isn't giving me the "Blue Steel" look!


O.O... Can I keep him?


My favorite fishie. Kissy lips!


He was flat out intimidating

A few more:


...ZOMG BABIES! I couldn't get the pic to focus for the life of me but you get it. They were all skimming the surface!






2nd favorite pic of the day






BTW gators creep me out officially now...


Except for this one. He swam up to me and posed... He could still rip my face off if he wanted to but he decided to be courteous.

GATORS! <33 And I like the blue fish in with the turtle... they're pretty o_o


I'm scared of Rhinos and Hippos because of the "splatter" warnings. And I got the Ace Ventura joke!!

lol the hippos they have at the omaha zoo are in a sunken exhibit, safely away from everyone else... OH also I nabbed a few snake pics. Not all that great, but meh. As long as they can't get to me I'll always try and annoy it with a camera :)

Western Diamondbacks looked bored.


Then there was this TINY rattlesnake.
