my lovely boyfriend adopted me a sloth at London Zoo.
We went to visit it on wednesday. was ruddy lovely!
they have built a new rainforest section. it reminds me much of a greenhouse at kew gardens.
You go in through heavy plastic curtains and a set of doors, and then you are actually in a walk away looking down onto a mini rainforest section. there is no glass screening it off, so some of the little monkeys and birds came right up to where we were! the two sloths there are beautiful. sleepy, and smiley, they lick their lips and yawn lots! we have named the male one seymor! I am planning on volunteering sometime there. maybe at the end of august/start of september [i am away/homeless from monday till the 4th of august]
we also saw amazing huge bats in the nighttime section. well silky. they moved like spider man up and down branches. amazing.
i wanted to go see the penguins, becuase i Bloody love Berthold Lubetkins art deco penguin enclosure.
However when i got there, it said the penguins had been moved.
I hope with my whole heart that it is just temporary and that Lubetkins art deco lovelness will be there forever!!! It is grade 1 listed, so they cant do anything to it. but i hope that they will still use it as a penguin enclosure, becuase that is part of the wonderfulness about it!!
here are some google image search photos of the penguin enclosure! ( Read more...Collapse )
i may do a total Lubetkin post soon!
