Canadian Cougar. Not the cute little pussy cat you might think! I think this girl just wanted to show off the ivory.
The Toronto Zoo is laid out by "continent". There is Africa, with elephants and lions, North America with otters, beaver, moose, and antelope, South America with flamingos, tapirs, and Jaguars, and Asia with Snow leopards and Tigers. It is considered to be one of the finest zoos in the world, and a day spent amongst the animals (while watching other animals) is a fine day.
The Zoo is HUGE...we traveled from place to place by the "on again, off again" train. Most of the exhibits are as natural as they can make them. Most of the animals seemed to be content, though the tigers seemed a little agitated...pacing about, wondering if another of those ubiquitous Canada Geese would drop in for dinner.
