While we are on Zoo images and Komodo dragons- difficult to get a decent shot of this one, behind glass and loads of yellow tinge. So B/W it is.

Several very nice images in Bruce's post. Glad he won't be hesitating to show us his zoo images on this thread.
The Komodo dragon below is at Walt Disney World
Thanks WPRESTO, that's all the shots I have from that visit, unlikely I shall be heading back any time soon. I have heard that the zoo in 'Dubbo' is actually excellent giving the animals far far greater larger enclosures, I'll aim to visit it one day but it is quite far away from where I live (4h drive).

Thank you. I now see how difficult and rewarding it is to even get a shot barley in acceptable focus

This one was cooperative though

A serval in an outdoor enclosure. A squirrel just outside the fence has his attention.

I've typed in this anecdote before, but once again. At a wildlife park in Canada specializing in native/local animals, I was photographic a fox in an outdoor enclosure when it turned and came right up to the fence in front of me staring at the grassy strip that separated the pavement where I was standing from the chicken wire fencing. I suddenly realized it was staring at the one leg of my tripod that was out in the grass. If I moved it side to side, the fox followed it intently. If I raised that leg off the ground. the fox lifted its head and still followed it right-left-up-down with with great interest. One of official park personnel came over to investigate and when I explained and demonstrated agreed to let me hold the tip of the 'pod close to the fence so the fox could sniff, but it did not lose interest until I left.

I'm sure this image has already been posted once. Maybe it's worth a second look
