Because of the Giant Pandas they chose the Adelaide Zoo.
This Zoo opened its gates in 1883 and prides itself on its conservation efforts and enclosure design.
Wang Wang is the male and ever so handsome. Look at those 'knowing' eyes.
He is 6yo and very placid. His favourite past time is 'snoozing' (except if there is bamboo shoots around).
Funi is 5yo and is very intelligent, active, curious, and loves exploring.
Both of the bears came from China and are apparently 'genetically' a fantastic pair to breed baby pandas.
The 'ultimate' arranged Panda marriage!
This is the only baby Panda around here at the moment.
I could personally sit and watch the Meerkats all day.
They are just to funny. So busy, so organised.
Another favourite was this cute little native animal which we think was a Quokka...
He just wanted to curl up and sleep on someone's lap.
We could have easily taken him home.
I didn't take a photo but the zoo has a pair of flamingos that have been there since 1933. Their enclosure was the very first constructed.
78 year old flamingos......amazing!!
