They went to The Zoo without me again!

On a fine day in early March, Dad and Mom decided to check out the new arrivals at the Taipei Zoo, the famous Panda Duo from Sichuan Province, China, Tuan Tuan (團團) and Yuan Yuan (圓圓)! Needless to say, I was not allowed to go again.

Here they are! Strike a pose!

Can't hug the real panda, but Mom didn't mind.

Of course, Dad had to pose with one to please Mom.

He was also forced to stand with Big Black Bear!

Here are some other animals that they spotted other than those we saw on the last zoo trip with Grandma:

Gorilla in the mist!

A sleepy female lion. Zzzzzzz....


Someone is yawning...

Elephants on land!

Feeding time for the Hippopotamus!

And a lonely camel. Where are his friends?

That's all for now, look out for my next post on a trip to Miaoli with Howler! Happy weekend, everyone!

Oh Dino - what a shame you can't go along! I've never been to a zoo either...although I think I would just be terrified of all the animals! :)

Can't wait to hear all about your trip with Howler!!

Oh, I love the zoo trip! Look at those creatures, some are very cute like Pandas or camel, some are ugly cute like Hippopotamus or Rhinoceros!
Your parents are beautiful couple, now I know where you got your good look!
And please come to my blog to pick up your 2 Rose and Friendship Awards and to see me proposing to my dream girl.
Love ya lot

Oh no, they went without you? Sowwy you missed all the fun, but you know, there are certain places where we're not allowed to go...

Big hugs and don't worry, your parents will make up to you and you will have fun together :)

Pipa said...

Such lovely photos!!!

Why can't we go to this places? :(
We would behave!

I'm sure one day we'll be able to go.

Well, Dino, you are one of the candidates to be my boyfriend, did you know? It's being so hard to decide... :)

Hi, Dino!
Looks like your Mom and Dad had a pawesome time there at the Zoo!
Thanks for sharing all the pictures.
My mom had a good laugh looking at the hippos! She says I have a hippo butt!
Kisses and hugs

How bad your Dad and Mom went to the zoo without you! They sure had a great time!
Lovely pictures.
That panda looks so cute!
Thanks for sharing.

I think it is right that your mom and dad did not take you to the zoo.Because you are glared at to a lion, and I do not want you to shake.

Hi Dino! This is one of the coolest things about blogging - Zeke and I will never go to the Taipei Zoo - or any zoo - but you've brought it to us! Great pix!

See ya!

That looks like a nice zoo. Your dad was a good sport to pose for pictures. My mom HATES having her picture taken but she insists on taking mine all the time. If I could figure out the camera I'd make her pose for me for a change!

Hey Dino,

I don't go to the zoo either but I watch Discovery Channel and Animal Planet and I think they are better.

Woah, look at all those cool animals.. Though maybe it's better you didn't go. I wouldn't want to try playing with any of those guys.

I love Panda... and just bought a Panda Bag from the following Blogshop:

Nice to meet you.
