ABC Revisiting Z

 Coming to the end of our ABC Wednesday revisits, we have come to Z in Round 9. Round 10 will be coming up next week and we start again with A. I found ABC Wednesday at the start of Round 2, so have been doing this for four years.

This round was revisiting places I have been, so here are  Zebras from two Zoos. The one above in Phoenix last November, and the one below joining his giraffe friends at Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo a few years ago is the same one as the one at the top. I think. They do rather resemble each other don't they?






At the San Francisco Zoo in 2010 we saw the gorillas, including baby  Hasani below, who was not quite two years old. I wonder how big he is now.







This young orangutan was at the Phoenix Zoo this fall. Dad is seen below.

 Seeing double in Phoenix.

 Giraffes are a favorite of mine and feeding them in Seattle was a special treat for my birthday. (The group in the top are in Phoenix and the mug shots below are from San Francisco.)

Wow! Impressive photos, to be sure. Zebras always look so clean and tidy!

GREAT shots! That gorilla looks rather formidable, though, so I wouldn't want to get in his way. lol
