Today I'm going to share a strange concept with you. I have a friend who, when asked if she'd like to join in on a day trip to Chester Zoo, uttered the words "I really don't like the zoo, I just don't like animals and don't see the point".
Despite a huge amount of persuasion on our parts, she still refused. Luckily, she does enjoy days out with lots of shopping and food (see exhibit A as evidence of our most recent escapade last week) so I can still grant her permission to remain friends with me, plus she's a lovely person and one of my oldest friends too so I suppose I'll have to let her off for her lack of zoological enthusiasm.
But seriously... take a look at how flipping beautiful these animals are and then try to explain how somebody couldn't enjoy a day in the sunshine watching chimpanzees causing more drama than an episode of Coronation Street and spying on the teeny-tiniest baby elephants.
|(thought I'd throw in a token mug shot to demonstrate what a jolly old time I had. Now on to the better looking animals...)|
See... Zoos are AWESOME.
(As is the zoom lens I borrowed from my Dad for the day.)
