A Trip To Chester Zoo - Again!


So I recently went for a day out at Chester Zoo, and of course took my camera with me! As I'm an Animal Studies student at the University of Chester I am luckily enough to receive an annual zoo pass allowing me free entry in to the zoo, as part of my course. I also live a 10 minute bus journey from the zoo (Bonus!) meaning zoo days out are literally just round the corner for me.

The weather was really lovely which was great! Nice and sunny with a light breeze to keep to cool as you were walking round. The sun also gave good lighting for photos which I always like! Chester Zoo have loads of baby animals at the moment so if you live close by I would really recommend going, it's a great day out!

So, here's a few snaps I got during the day!

Elephant scratching it's butt on the log! You gotta do what you gotta do!

Mummy and baby

Another baby. I'm not sure if this is the one above or another.

The female Great One Horned Rhino...the male didn't get a picture because he was being rude!

Capybara chilling in the sun

Grevy's Zebra

Roan Antelope with its big, floppy ears.

Black Rhino mummy. Her baby is just behind but we couldn't see it properly as they were both napping.

And a zoo visit wouldn't be complete without a Meerkat photo! Don't be fooled though, they're not at all as cute as they look! You'll understand if you've ever had to work with them.

Humboldt penguin about to go in the water. There was actually a Grey Heron in the enclosure steeling fish!

Lovely little bird in the walk through bird enclosure

And another!

Green Tree Python. Beautiful looking snake and actually one of my favourite snake species

And again

Otters having their dinner...sorry about the fish head!

Penguins again

Hope you enjoyed looking!

  1. Chester Zoo is honest to god my happy place. If any boy ever takes me there, I will be down the aisle faster than a flash Mulberry sale being announced.


  2. So jealous that you are that close to the zoo and the fact you get a free pass! Only been there once and that was with uni so the trip was short and sweet. Definitely want to go one of the days especially when it's nice weather like this. Love the pictures! Heather h-l-w.blogspot.co.uk xxx
