Images taken at Edinburgh Zoo. April 2017.
Our recent visit to Edinburgh Zoo was an opportunity to see various animals we hadn’t previously encountered. Of course, one of the highlights was the panda exhibit where we caught a glimpse of the UK’s only giant pandas – quite an amazing sight. The zoo is also home to the UK’s only koalas, who looked so soft and cuddly! At Penguins Rock we saw a waddle of various types of penguin; rockhopper, gentoo and king penguins. It was nice to see the different varieties all grouped together in the same exhibit, which is Europe’s largest outdoor penguin pool! We enjoyed the Animal Antics talk, which was very cleverly done, with various creatures wondering out from ‘backstage’ right on cue as the keeper spoke in depth about each one. Of course, there was also time to explore the play areas and buy some souvenirs in the gift shop before heading home. This was a lovely end to our time in Scotland.
