A Little more HDR, this time at the Zoo! This started out life as a set of three bracketed photographs of a West African dwarf Crocodile in the Reptile House of Bristol Zoo (@BristolZooGdns). This beautiful example is a member of a vulnerable species and is the smallest example of the crocodile genus. Unfortunately this croc’s brothers and sisters are often killed for bush meat or even worse just to turn them into shoes.

Taken at Bristol Zoo during an evening event, Danbo decided that he wanted to join me in a Beer (thanks to @BathAles ). Unfortunately the pint was a little to much for him to finish, so I had to help!

As many of you will by now be aware Bristol Zoo is celebrating it’s 175 birthday this year, in aid of that the Zoo ran a special evening event last Friday. As a Zoo Member I was lucky enough to gain entry for free along with Emma. Not only did this give us better access to the animals (a much smaller number of visitors), but we were also treated to a BBQ, @BathAles bar and a concert by the Cotswold Big Band. Tickets for non members were £10 each, so we were very lucky to get in for free (only a limited number of free member tickets were available).

Forget the Zombie Invasion, it appears that Bristol is to be the stage for a Gorilla Invasion (and I’m not talking about a rehash of Planet of the Apes).

Bristol Zoo has had a Baby Boom this year, starting with the birth of two beautiful Asiatic Lion cubs, quickly followed by my favorite the baby Tapir George. There have also been Meerkats, Golden Lion Tamarins, Sid the Sloth and a beautiful little fur seal.
