A day at Taronga Zoo, Sydney

Last Saturday I visited Taronga Zoo. Surrounded by water and overlooking the amazing Sydney cove, Taronga zoo is a wonderful place to spend time with family and kids. It has finest collection of native animals as well as exotic species. We bought a Ferry pass that included the Zoo ticket from Circular Quay. 

The boat crosses Opera house and from a distance you can see two iconic marvels – Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House, together



The ferry took about 15 minutes to reach Taroonga zoo. Since we already had the ticket, we took the Skyrail to reach the entrance.

And then started our meet with some amazing wild life creatures.

We first went to the Reptile zone.

Basilisk
now he's quite conscious of being photographed


Bearded Dragon 
need a shave , maybe



 Eyelash Viper 
I didn't wait to find out why she's called that.


Fijian Banded Iguana 
nice camouflage buddy



 Fijian Creasted Iguana 
Look at that... trying to shy away from paparazzi 


Zila Monster
ohh the patterns on it's body is so beautiful and intriguing.


Green Iguana
 now he looks really grumpy 


Green Tree-Frog
loved his camouflage too, but dear cut down on oil ... you look really slimy




Komodo Dragon
he's throwing some serious look my way


Sailfin Lizard
I love him... gorgeous 


Barbary Sheep
So what if it's a sheep, those horns would keep me miles away


Bongo
The large species of anteloped found in Africa. Long way from home huh


Giraffe
 Mr Giraffe is really really tall


The Seal Show 
Mitchi's act was so adorable :D


Komodo Dragon 
He tried relaxing on that sunny afternoon but his fans just won't stop cliking photos



Spiny Leaf Stick insect
Don't mistake it for dry leaf... gawd.. they really know how to mix with their environment


Sumatran Tiger

They are one of the smallest species of tiger but just as regal and gorgeous. And sadly endangered.


After looking at these wondrous creatures, human beings seem so colorless and boring.
