Today was a day at the Zoo! Brendan's work is a sponsor so they get a staff day once a year and today is it, unfortunately it coincided with the last day of school holidays and the weather was absolutely glorious! not to mention the 2 cuties in the photo below which are drawing massive crowds.
Luk Chai is on the left and Pathi Harn on the right (his mother behind). Pathi Harn was initially called mr Shuffles by the keepers and is something of a miracle (the thai meaning of his name) as he was thought to have died in the womb during birth. It was 1-2 days later that he arrived with signs of life, he's now 5 weeks old and 156kgs!
Luk chai was born earlier in the year, or late last year and is 400kgs!
So wonderful to see them playing and just to have them there is very cool!
