The one where we go to the zoo in the Autumn!19:58
It was also all Halloween themed. Some of the staff were dressed up! They even had a haunted church area, with a grave yard and what not. It was quite spooky, especially when the scary man kept on jumping out on me. Boy, did I jump! Haha.
We had a wonderful time at Colchester zoo. It was really, really good fun! It is SO big, there is so much to see and do, it's certainly worth the money. And we seriously learned so much about how the animals live in the wold, what they eat and so much more! It was amazing.
I have SO many photos to share.
The zebras and giraffes were Ellie's favourite. They are super cool and they looked pretty happy. They have a lot of space to roam around in! Ellie was all "Can we have a pet giraffe" Haha.

|Ostriches and other animals.|
|The Rhinos were super cool!|
The sea lion display was AMAZING! We watched the sea lions jump in the air and touch the orange balls. There was another se alion walking around the edge! They were very fascinating and we learned so much about how they live in the wold. Super cool! It was really good how the zoo keepers did the sealion display and the sea lions seemed to tame. They actually seemed to like showing off! Although, they didn't always want to co-operate. Haha.

Colchester zoo is also very pretty! There are so many flower displays, beautiful trees and the pond looks very beautiful indeed, especially at this time of year. Guys, Colchester zoo in the Autumn looks very beautiful.
|The flamingos are stunning.|
Ellie also got to play on the (one of the many) park for a while, I don't know why I didn't take photos though!
We also got to feed some very greedy goats! We brought a pot of food from the desk for them. They kept nudging us because we weren't giving them the food fast enough, lol!
I really, really loved the penguins. At one point one of them was following Ellie as she walked along the sode of the tank/pool. I think it wanted to play! I couldn't get a pic though, it was quite dark. We did however, go up to the surface and watch the penguins!
Ellie of course had to name each and every single penguin, haha! She was like "oh my goodness they are exactly like Pingu" Guess what she wanted to watch when we got home?! Haha.
The Wallaby's were really cool, too! I LOVE these animals. I find them most fascinating.
We also saw meercats, lions, a tiger, birds of all kinds, a bear, hyinana's but my favourite? The green Iguana's I love them and I really love the fact that you like walk around in there little hut thingy! The Rhino Iguanas were also really cool! I love reptiles.
|The Iguanas were amazing!|
I think, my absolute favourite though, has to be the monkeys and I know that Ellie really, really loved them, too because she kept asking if we could take them home with us LOL.
We didn't get to see all of the animals, (probably 75%) it's exhausting but such good fun! I also have rotten cold and sore throat. We spent a good seven hours at the zoo though! And next time we go to the zoo we'll certainly check out the animals we didn't see. I also haven't been able to share ALL the photos I took, I have however, shared some on instagram and will be sharing more over the next few days. Be sure to follow me: Sassyserz
