Calgary Zoo

Also on the Geoff & Hazel tour of Alberta was the obligatory visit to Calgary Zoo.

When you go to the zoo, you take a camera and you take snaps. We were no different…

Moose…
We were at a party recently and Eam learned something that might just save your or our lives one day. He was standing chatting over a beer (as you do) and the subject turned to Moose (as it does…remember, this is Canada). Apparently, Moose are so tall, “leggy” and top heavy that if you ever hit one while driving, your absolutely instant reaction MUST be to duck down into the front well of the car because you can be sure that the Moose is going to be thrown across your bonnet (he said “hood”, this is Canada!) and it will crash through your windscreen! Unfortunately, the conversation moved onto pearls of wisdom re Eagles, Deer, oh yes, and Gophers, before the chap could appraise Eam on what he is supposed to do when the Moose is sat above him in the seat of the car. We guess you just work that one out for yourself at the time. BUT, you have been warned! Don’t know about you but this chap seemed reasonably amused by the story…
Owls…
You don’t need us to name these do you!…here’s a little selection of pics…
Apparently, Porcupines are so bad at just about all the necessities of finding food that they have to forage all year ’round, while all the other animals take a well earned kip during the long Canadian winter!
Ahhh, sweet…
