The Denver Zoo has reopened, with extra precautions in place for Covid. Tickets have to be purchased online in advance, you have to choose from available timeframes, and you can’t wander the zoo willy-nilly. Barricades and painted arrows keep visitors moving through the zoo on a one-way path from entry to exit.
We were there on a chilly morning, so some of the animals were more active in their enclosures and some were keeping warm in their shelters out of sight. This adorable hyena just wanted to play!
The bear looked very cozy and sleepy.
I wasn’t able to get a good photo of the tiger, but I feel obliged to include him anyway.
I wasn’t able to get a good shot of the serval either, but he is too cute to leave out.
I think this a clouded leopard? He was snug in his box.
The cold made the lions lively and frolicky. There are two or three separate lion enclosures, so the different age groups were all enjoying themselves in different ways.
This guy was not about sharing his ball.
I took a gazillion pics, so there are probably more zoo posts to come.
