    When I used to live in Mosman it was quite amazing to hear The animal noises eminating from the zoo especially the lions roaring at night time .This of course made me feel like I was anywhere except this quiet leafy suburb of Sydney. I have many times visited this zoo and I used to enjoy so much the photo opportunities that the Zoo enabled me to have.
    This is a very large zoo and I would say that most exotic animals found in all parts of the world are living here..There are of course the Native Australian wildlife along with a nocturnal house for the animals that "live by night" and is dark during the daytime.There is a large collection of snakes and reptiles. all the big cats are here ..white tigers, Lions, Leopards, Snow leopards, jaguars, panthers,although I do love the big cats ..my favourites are the Meer cats...I guess we all have our favourites and I am sure that you will find yours here..

    Koalas

    Our Happy Fella

    We came to the zoo specifically because Liz wanted to see Koalas. We first waited on line for our Koala encounter and had our pictures taken with an over friendly bear. We then moved on to see the other Koalas. Most were asleep in trees but one precocious bear was up and about giving us a little show.

    We found out that contrary to belief. Koalas are not sleeping because the Eucalyptus makes them drunk; their digestive systems are very slow and require a lot of energy to digest the Eucalyptus so they must sleep to conserve the energy they need for digestion.

    Camera Shy?

    The Red Panda obviously didn't want to play to the camera. He was lying on his tree branch hanging out and keeping his face turned. We waited a bit to see if he would turn but he didn't much to Liz's disapointment.

    Me & an example of the Lizards
    3 more images

    We basically ran through most of the reptile area. They had live snakes out of the cages with handlers. Neither one of us likes snakes so we boogied out of there as fast as we could. At the end of the exhibit were some large Lizards (in cages thankfully) that we could observe without fear of being bit or eaten.

    Liz & the giraffes

    It is such a strange yet awesome sight to see giraffes with the city skyline behind them. We lingered a bit here to see the giraffes who basically just walked around and ate from large feeders at the corners of the habitat.

    Kangaroos

    The kangaroos seemed to have too much caffeine that morning. They were bouncing around their habitat at such a frenzy it was impossible to get a pic of the. They even startled us by slamming feet first into the fences.

    Funny Little Meerkat

    The Meerkats were fun to watch. Their habiat was a dessert area with burrows, rocks and branches spread across a large open area surrounded by a wall. We enjoyed watching them scurry around and romp with each other. They are very funny creatures and quite entertaining.

    it's one of the trouist / education spot for local and tourist. Their attractions are the bird show and seal show. with the music as background, audience are all eyes and ears to the staff and the animals (birds and seals). they will make you suprised with how the Seals and birds show their talent and make you laugh with the help of the animals.
    Besides the show, the zoo create certain zone like Asian animals, aviary, etc. i saw some animals that i haven't seen before and got to know their habits. Surely kids will like spending a day in this zoo. Very interesting!

    It wouldn't be a zoo without a big bear. The bear looked a bit uncomfortable and hot walking around the habitat. He was a big guy and had some realy thick fur considering the season.

    I loved the lions and tigers. They really are awesome creatures. We had some annoying kids heckeling the animals and banging against the fencing. We were hoping they would get eaten....

    How'd they do it?

    It's amazing to watch these mountain goats balance on the rocks and jump from level to level. I don't know how they don't fall.

    Gorillas in the sun

    The Gorillas are always pretty chill. They were just hanging about grooming each other and eating. We were happy to stand about watching them seem so at ease in their habitat.

    Lying in Wait

    Crocodiles aren't seen doing muck but laying about or partialy submerged in the water. Unless there is a feeding they stay pretty still watching everything around them.
