Isle of the Tiger

Isle of the Tiger

The Phoenix Zoo recently opened the Isle of the Tiger. This exhibit improved the viewing opportunities of the Sumatran tiger. An elephant, possibly Reba, paraded by us in her nearby compound. We found one baboon carefully preening a sister. The mandrills always amaze with their colorful faces. The white rhinoceros was feeding in a spot for viewing. The Arabian ornyx were also feeding. A nocturnal fox eyed us from a hole in a tree trunk. The speckled rattlesnakes were active. A small nowy egret poised for a picture as did a turkey vulture. The prarie dogs were enjoying the sun and breakfast treats. The burrowing owls showed how far they can twist their heads. A golden eagle eyed us as a worker watered down its exhibit. Another good day visiting the Phoenix Zoo.
