Exercise Plus

My lovely cubs decided to come put and play, and play, and play on Friday. I really want to get some video of them, but there are always so many people going googoo eyed at them and blocking the view.

One thing's for sure, everyone who saw them thought they had their money's worth at the zoo that day.

When I arrived, one baby was annoying dad. In the wild, the cubs would be unlikely to meet dad, but JaeJae is such a softy, and he loves mum Melati so much, they decided not to separate them this time round.

When dad had had enough, he went back inside.

When mum saw baby trying to follow, she was on guard immediately.

"Daddy, where did you go?"

Who's a pretty cub, then?

"What mischief can we get up to next?" The boy, Achilles, is on the right, the girl, Carys (?spelling) is the paler cub on the left.

Up for a fight.

A pause in cub hostilities.

These brave little warriors are still barely three months old. It's impossible not to love them.

Steal This Movie

This film told me a lot more about the 60s than I ever learned living through them. LIke who Abbie Hoffman was...

Big Cat Adventure

All we saw of the male lion this time was his retreating bum.

The keeper with one of the best jobs in the world was feeding the lionesses through the wire, training them to do what was necessary to allow their keepers and the vet to make sure all is well.

They are a beautiful trio, but no wonder the three feisty sisters intimidate their potential mate.

JaeJae was showing himself off.

Brave baby tigers

I took a friend to the zoo on Wednesday. We didn't manage to see the baby goillas, and the male lion didn't put in an appearance. But the tiger cubs were lured out when their mother tried to get a snack, and one even almost dared to play with dad's tail. Considering that dad is half as big again as mum, that's a very brave thing to do. Sadly I didn't get a picture of that. The viewing platforms were so crowded, the distance too great, and the incidents so brief. But cub(s) and dad I did get. (I'm still not clever enough to tell if I have a picture of each cub, or two of the same one. Theye didn't appear together.) They are still jsut two months old!

Spanish Judges

Another film I didn't really care for. He has a wonderful head, but I still prefer him with hair.
