Postcard from the Melbourne Zoo (2)

I just love the meerkats. Maybe one day they'll be domesticated and we can have them as companions - they look like they'd love to be part of a family. What do you think?

The Bugs and Butterflies house at the Melbourne Zoo is fascinating. Children and adults alike stand with expectant hands outstretched waiting for a colourful visitor.

The elephants have a special place at the Melbourne Zoo. An Asian village has been created complete with meeting house and vegetable gardens. A new bamboo forest grows nearby and the elephants have large areas where they can roam, bath and play. If you like elephants, take a detour to our Sri Lankan elephant safari.

Otters love water play and a glass window gets you right up close to view their antics.
