Artis Zoo @ Amsterdam

The weekend is here and what better way to spend it than in the Zoo. Thanks to a corporate arrangement, we have free entry tickets to the Zoo. It is the second year running that we are here and it is definately much better as I can last recall as it was going under some refurbishment the last time I visited.

Here is a nice picture I took of a brave Prairie dog that was standing in front of its colony against a crowd of people looking.

Well, maybe it is just occupied with eating. Also, I learned that these Rodent family are called Dogs because they make barking noises. Did not manage to hear any of them though so I had to trust whatever is written on the sign.

It is always inspiring to see what mother nature has to offer but equally sad to see the animals being caged or in a confined space. So, I will be neutral on this topic and more against the animals in the Circus.
