Melbourne Zoo March 2008

My aunt was visiting so we did the obligatory zoo outing.  It was over 40C, but her schedule meant this was the best day to go.  So many different things to photograph.  Unfortunately as we were heading towards the new Elephant enclosure the Zoo was evacuated due to an incident that we later discovered was caused by a young lion cub that they couldn’t find.  We were saddened to hear that it was eventually found dead in the lion enclosure pool.
