A long time ago I told myself I'd make a flickr for all the photos I take at the zoo as it seems silly that I take so many and never get to use them for anything. Today I FINALLY sat down and uploaded almost 500 photos!! but I ran into some problems ID'ing some of the animals, I searched on the zoo's sites but they didn't help. I hope it is okay that I post this here, I didn't know where else to go and I know there's quite a few experts! Please take a look at the Flickr account (also let me know if I ID'ed something wrong etc.)

There is NO WAY someone is going to go through all those links. Zoos should have signage identifying animals and, of not, zookeepers who will.

I just you go back there for the I.D. and take notes.

If they were all taken at the same zoo..go to their website, I am sure they will have a map of animals they house.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I did use the Zoo's sites to try and find out the animals, but none of them helped, so I thought i'd give it a try and post here but I do realize it was a lot of links :/

Why not just shoot the display signage either before or after you shoot the animal?

Reptile 1 is some type of poison dart frog.

Reptile 4 is maybe an emerald tree boa? Or something close to that.

First mammal looks like a vervet or guenon monkey.
Second mammal sable antelope.
First bird is a white-crested laughing thrush.
First butterfly is Heliconius erato or Heliconius melpomene. I can only tell them apart by size. Sorry, I don't know a common name.
Second butterfly looks like an owl butterfly to me.
