Edinburgh Zoo

April 26, 2016

So over the weekend myself and my boyfriend went on a little trip to Edinburgh and while we were there we paid a little visit to Edinburgh Zoo. I can safely say it's one of the best weekends I've had in a while and I am slightly obsessed with pandas so you can imagine my excitement getting to see one.
The highlights of the trip:

  • The penguin parade - Where they open the gates and allow the penguins to decide whether they want to parade around a section of the zoo and they can walk right up to you and look at your shoes and in your bags so you need to be very careful.
  • The pandas - Even though I only got to the Yuang Guang (the male) it was still worth it and they give a little talk explaining what they do with the pandas and why they do it. They tell you a lot of interesting facts about them and how they are still trying to successfully breed them.
  • Walking with Lemurs - There's a lemur walk where you enter their enclosure and you can walk around the set path and the lemurs are quite cheeky and will sometimes run in front of you and show off jumping around.
Here are a few pictures which I took on my phone, apologies for the camera quality, but these are my favourites:
