Why birds? Hand raised, Zookeepers walk these two cheetahs through the zoo daily. Seeing them, I was glad to have my camera in hand. It is one of my favourite Auckland zoo photos.

I really like the photo of elephants…. I hear about the Singapore Zoo so often I really want to go there. Maybe next time. That looks like a lovely zoo to visit. I was going to say what YAM did about the Eclectus parrot. The Kea is an interesting looking parrot. I find most parrots are very smart and full of personality.
Thanks for sharing these animals and it was great to see some that are native to New Zealand. By the way, can I move across the ditch right now? No snakes.
Now that would be nice. Yes, you are correct it is a Eclectus Parrot. I have corrected the caption.
I am pretty sure we have open boarders, so if you are an Aussie citizen, yes you can move to beautiful New Zealand. I like the zoos with the open enclosures that do their best to mimic natural environments. It helps encourage people to think about animals and preservation. The leopards are fantastic! Such beautiful animals!
Yes, New Zealand is a bird nation. Birds had no natural predators other than each other before people arrived. There is much to be said for being in the right place at the right time and you have captured two magnificent creatures ready for a little exercise. Nicely done. I not only was there for the shot, I watched them walk by and was allowed to follow, at a safe distance determined by the zoo staff. Never heard of a mountain parrot til now!
Cheetahs are so beautiful. And big. Being in a zoo probably hurts them the most since they can never get up to full speed.
I so love going too. Your shots are breathtakingly beautiful. As always. Zoos are very educational but we still wonder about how the animals are being treated well. I hate cages. Some unusual looking birds. I have mixed feelings about zoos as well, but for some animals, it might be their only chance for survival.
They doing renovations at the moment but it was still a great time. Please note: all responses will come directly from Auckland Zoo, and not the team at Bookme. Remind me on date. One of the best zoos in the world. Please try again later.
That Kea is certainly impressive! I love visiting zoos when we travel, sadly never been to Auckland Zoo. Thanks for showing. Hi Rhonda — the cheetah are amazing … I loved seeing them in South Africa.
