Taipei Zoo

posted by Martin Rubli at 10:28

We like to go to the zoo once in a while, and this time I had the proper equipment for it: a 55-300 mm lens for my DSLR. It's like wildlife photography for people without patience and money for expensive photo equipment. :-)

Black Sugar, the zoo's Formosan Black Bear was tirelessly (haha, get it?) playing with a tire.

This was hilarious. The Malayan Tapirs were just being fed but the Siamangs immediately started stealing the vegetables and sneaked off with them. The tapirs couldn't care less though - they seemed more interested in the green leaves.

團團 (Tuan tuan), the male panda, doing what he does best: lying around in the same place he was when we visited him two years ago. With that sort of energy level it's no big surprise that Pandas are endangered.

The poorest Pelican you'll ever see. It's hard to imagine how he can survive with half his beak missing but he seems to manage. When he drinks he just quickly snaps back his head, so that the water won't flow out of it.
