As it was raining on my birthday, we decided to postpone going to the zoo until the weekend. Thankfully the sun was shining brightly on Saturday morning so Jonny and I headed to Bristol Zoo nice and early to see our favourite animals. I've loved going to the zoo since I was little so this little trip was really exciting! We saw the lions first and it was incredible how close we were to them, to hear their gigantic roars and it was adorable to see such big animals cuddling up to one another whilst they had a nap. Next up were my favourite animals, monkeys! I could watch these fascinating creatures all day, they are so cute to watch.
After a lunch break of roast ham sandwiches and rainbow cake at the coral restaurant, we wandered around to see what other animals we could find. We came across gigantic gorillas, pretty pink flamingos, cute little penguins and cuddly red pandas. Hidden away near the nectar garden, we stumbled upon the butterfly house. Never have I ever seen so many beautiful butterflies all in one place! They were simply stunning to photograph and the butterfly photos were my favourites from the day (as well as the cute upside down monkey).
I had such a lovely day and can't wait to explore other zoo's!
What's your favourite animal?
