Yesterday we again ventured to Melbourne Zoo, this time to see both baby elephants, Mali and Ongard. Again they were really cute.

There have been some changes since we last visited 14 months ago. Roan the brown bear and Monifah the pygmy hippo have both passed away, which is really sad, while the bachelor gorillas have moved to Werribee, whilst there is a new elephant, Ongard, and new baby orang-utan.

It was a good day to visit even though it was cold and wet. I think that because of the weather there weren’t many people there, and we didn’t have only 5 minutes to watch the elephants. I think we were there for at least an hour.
