I Saw Things That Saturday!
We are back.
We left off the other week, having talked about some of the few animals that I saw at the zoo.
This is part 2 of “I saw things that Saturday”!
I saw a giant “elly”.
By elly, I mean an elephant.
Well, it was not as big as the gigantic African elephant but this baby was big, too.
Look at that black and white stripped animal called a zebra!
I did not get enough seeing it graze and eat!
I loved seeing this golden-looking animal.
It looks like an antelope….I am not sure of it’s name.
Do you know it’s name?
The antelope kept in it’s place as it fed in peace.
Just look at that beauty!
Ah yes, there was the beauty of the camel.
I would like to sit on a camel for a ride or even feed it!
I saw a little spider conquer the wire mesh fence!
Nothing that looked like food was going away without it’s notice!
The cheetahs….yes yes!
I think they were taking their rest from the scorching sun that day and did not want to look at any of us.
They are very beautiful cats, I must say.
It is amazing how those two sets of animals (the giant crawling lizards and the birds) lived in harmony in that cage and we humans just cannot seem to get along with one another!
Then, there was this friend of mine who looked like a tiny dog.
I have forgotten his name but he looked very ready for my camera shot.
It is such a giant.
I do not know why it looks so much smaller in the movies than it really is, in real life!
Look at that parrot…
It is a classic beauty!
Enter the bird of my country, the Crested Crane!
Do you know that it is a crime to hold this bird captive or harm it in any way?
Have you ever seen the bird called the peacock?
It has a really long tail…which is beautifully coloured in white, black, green, black and blue!
Yyyyooooo….look at the size of that rhino!
It’s like me put together in 4 sizes.
Was it not dangerous for those people to feed it, at that close range?
When was the last time you saw a shoebill?
I had never seen one up-close in real life.
It is a beauty!
Then, in comes the legend, “Zakaayo”!
Zakaayo lived from 1963 to 2018!
So many people that visited the zoo in those years knew him and miss him.
Some of us only got to see him in a monument-form.
Careful…there is someone by the gate!
They are very selective on who they let in their life!
Allow me do some work, for now.
I will check on you later.
I hope you enjoy this edition of “I Saw Things That Saturday”!

Wow! That is so amazing and awesome! My whole family would love to see those for sure!
What a great place and a wonderful description in this article. I’ve never seen a rhino close-up but would love to!
Amazing Saturday with animals. I would love to visit wild animals and check them in real life.
I love seeing wild animals! I used to take my kids to the zoo all the time!
It looks and sounds like you had an amazing Saturday. All of those beautiful animals and such lovely weather to boot. I am a little jealous!
sounds like a great Saturday, thanks for sharing all the pics 🙂 wild animals rock!
It looks like you had a wonderful trip to the zoo! We try to go to at least 3 zoos every year, and we always have so much fun.
I like giant “elly”. Would love to see her too!
I haven’t been to the zoo in years. A visit is over due.
My daughter has a parrot that keeps showing up on her back porch. It’s a most amazing thing. Thanks for sharing your photos.
So many cool animals! I really miss coming to the zoo!
interesting photos, we love going to the zoo and we miss seeing so many animals, thanks for sharing this

So many animals in the zoo, including the spider, haha. The zoo in my city doesn’t have that many animals but it’s a very nice place for families.
Seems like your Saturday was dedicated to nature. It is always great to visit and encounter beautiful species. I also visited a Zoo last week and enjoyed every bit of it
Animals are my favorite. So visiting zoo is also a big recreation for me.
I love animals but I don’t enjoy zoos much because I know these animals are trapped. But anyways, these animals are gorgeous.
