1 year old elephant
I forget the name, but this is not a longhorn. I remember from the sign that the horns are used to help cool the animal. Impressive radiator.
Gorilla enclosure. There are 7 names posted. We only saw 2.
This curious one was just on the other side of the glass. Note the reflection of a cell phone. Kidinbox stated that these are very dangerous animals for the keepers as they are extremely smart. The keeper needs to be careful at all times. One example was that a female keeper was working with them and on turning her head, the animal grabbed her hair.
Active ants. They are carrying pieces of leaves. The sign stated that they are not eating the leaves, but rather the [fungus] that grows on the leaves.
