For the easter holiday we wanted to do a day trip with the kids, but given the ongoing pandemic we didn’t want to do a theme park with all the screaming and close contact that entails. But even my two very cool teenager can be lured into a nice zoo with interesting animals. This time we chose Frankfurt. It’s easy to reach by train, not too far for a day trip, and the train tickets were still in the affordable range, though they only were because the kids were free.
And my camera got something to do (it’s getting bored in here), with the stalker lens giving insecure men inferiority complexes. So stay tuned over the next days for a lot of animal pics.
This chill boy has his enclosure near the entrance, and showing off his amazing talent of chilling 20hrs a day, he didn’t move once between us arriving and leaving.
I saw a sloth! At least that’s what the signs claim. But it had moved from the canopy to a location unknown between our first and second visit.
Look at those babies! Binturongs are seriously cute, even though they always look ancient, even when they’re babies.

Sloths are almost as cool as badgers. Pretty much “leave me alone.” Except I like the badgers’ way of telling people that, no, they mean it.
You got a fantastic close up of the lazy lion, he looks rather as if he’s saying “Why? Why are you disturbing my rest?”
