Brookfield Zoo PIC HEAVY!

Went to the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago and grabbed some pictures! Some need a bit of editing to make them darker and whatnot, but here's what I grabbed. WONDERFUL zoo, totally recommend it if you're ever around Chicago! Definitely enough stuff to do for a whole day.

Soo... here we go (: Forgive me, I don't remember the names of all of the animals, just some!

Zebra...



Wild horses...



Green Tree Python...


Amur Tiger... heheh (:




Snow Leopard...


Lion... There was a female, but I liked this picture best.


Amur Leopard... poor guy, everyone was calling him a Cheetah ):


Meerkat...


Alligator... Same one, different views



Two monkeys... can't remember what they were now...


Orangutan... Amazing, she (I'm pretty sure?) just kept looking at us (:


Gorillas... supposedly nap time is from 11:30-2:30. We got to them at noon...







Rest of the pictures in next post.... (:

Rhino... sleeping (:



Can't remember species, sorry...


Giraffes...


African Wild Dogs (my favorite exhibit of the zoo)





Juvenile Bald Eagle, I think...


Polar Bears...



Water Dragons...



Macaw...



Dunno the species... anyone know? Really curious



Frog, can't remember the species... lol


Gray Banded Kingsnake


Lizard... can't remember species, but was in a desert exhibit


Carpet Python, unsure what exact species... Probably Jungle?


Dunno what these are... ):



Well, that was my trip! PLENTY of animals I didn't photograph, so I want to go back someday and give it another shot! (:
