London Zoo

While in London, we took some time to stop and visit the London Zoo. While it was a bit cold and rainy, this is London, we had a great time. I really enjoyed the Komodo dragon and the extra long neck turtles. I also took one of my favorite pictures of a snake.

I could not resist calling this picture "Stuart Little goes to the Zoo" ;)  I have been given much grief about my comment, but it still stands. Hello Mr.Tiger!  With the window on the exhibit, you get the feeling that the tiger is coming right at you. the dragon SSSSSmile Mr. SSSSSnake The long neck turtle
