Austria – Vienna (Schönbrunn Zoo)

Animals are such agreeable friends – they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.” – George Elliot

 

Hey friends!

Today, we went to the oldest zoo in the world, the Tiergarten Schönbrunn! It was very nicely set up. Even on a rainy day, when the animals went inside for cover, they had windows in the back of the enclosure. This way, you do not miss any of your favorite little critters! I really enjoyed our visit.

Tigers are my favorite of the big cats.

We trapped our friend among the fearsome rabbits.

This bear was definitely enjoying the attention. He came up here, sat down and just watched and posed for us. He was adorable.

The elephants were adorable! Two of them were playing together for nearly half an hour. We had watched for a minute, went on and came back around and they were still at it. It was adorable.

I saw Arctic Wolves! Wolves are my absolute favorite animals! This is the first time I have been able to see them in real life. It was a big moment for me. Wish they were up and about, but even seeing the two laying around was better than nothing. They’re such beautiful animals!
