Hello! I've decided to start a topic to document my improvement in animal photography in zoos. I'm starting from the beginning and hopefully as this topic goes on my photos will get better :) The first photos I'd like to share come from the Oglebay Good Zoo in West Virginia. Feel free to ask any questions!

Meerkat (Suricata suricatta) perched in a window to observe it's surroundings

The most exciting species to me at this zoo, and one I have seen in only one other park, the Central Chinese Goral (Naemorhedus griseus)! Unfortunately as rather shy animals they are difficult to photograph but I tried my hardest.

Very beautiful pictures and animals. I think the tamarin is trying to see if you are dangerous or not. monkey There's a better section to put this topic, I will move it later. Very Happy

Nice pics! But there is a thing I don't understand: why the topic is titled London's zoo photography, but the images are from Oglebay zoo?

Same question as Isidro, I don't understand the title scratch

I thought the pics were from London zoo, then I saw the red wolf and figured out it was definitely not in London zoo !

Wonderful pictures of wonderfyl animals cheers
You must have had such a great day there Very Happy

Hmmm... if I were the zoo keeper , I would keep an eye on the Gouldian Finches. That one does not look quite healthy scratch

But the others look fantastic Very Happy
I it great that you mix extremely rare animals with more common ones, - even a donkey, - and enjoy the comments Wink

Isidro and Ben I believe Endogenylove's name is London, so it's her photos and not animals that can be found at the London zoo, as most of these species don't reside in Regent's Park.

Lovely array of species and nice photos too :)

Sorry for the confusion! Yes, my name is London. If it’s too confusing I could change the title name to having my username instead.

London, as it is a topic about your photographic skills and not exactly about a certain Zoo, I will keep this topic in this section. :)

Some new photos to upload today! While my trip to the Oglebay Zoo was a few weeks ago, I visited the Pittsburgh Zoo on Saturday. The Pittsburgh zoo is my hometown zoo and the zoo I have grown up visiting my entire life. It is a rather small and quaint zoo with fairly common species to see in parks (aside from one completely unique species I've saved for the end!) and I know many of the keepers, staff, and animals well from years of taking classes and volunteer work. You will probably see a lot more of these animals in the future considering that I get free admission, but nonetheless here are my photos from Saturday!

Thankyou for another wonderful walk through a great Zoo cheers

It looks like a real charming place, with happy, healthy animals , and I wished I could come and visit it Very Happy

You are probably right that elephant seals are extremely rare in captivity.
But not long ago I saw on tv a zoo where they had them also. It was in connection with the fact that the males have to be enormously fat before they become fertile  Laughing

A very nice journey through the zoo, some of the species are gorgeous. You surprised me when you said they had elephant seals, and yes these days they are very rare in captivity. I originally thought they had male elephant seals and then I was shocked as male elephant seals are huge!

We did have one male by the name of Coolio, and he made national headlines the zoo took him in. The exhibit the elephant seals are in was originally meant for walrus, so it provides a pretty good place for them. Coolio was completely blind and unfortunately he never made it to full adult size as he passed away from congenital abnormalities in December Sad

Great report! And yes undoubtely the elephant seals are what I associate with the word "Pittsburgh", from the times when Coolio was alive.
Blue monkeys are rare in zoos too, as well as walking batfish! (this one as exciting for me as are the elephant seals).
Those are not piranhas, but red hooks (Myleus rubripinnis).

I was aware that Blue monkeys are rare but certainly not that batfish are! I will pay more attention the next time I go through the aquarium. I will also edit the post to fix the red hook mistake! Thank you.

An update on this topic: Later today I will post pictures (probably in multiple parts) from the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. I also have photos from the Erie Zoo and Keystone Safari on backlog, and those pictures will be posted in the next few weeks.

I am proud to present pictures from the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in Cleveland, Ohio. Although when I went a large portion of the zoo was closed due to the virus and renovations, I can still show about half of the animals the zoo has to offer. The zoo is nice, although some of the exhibits are rather outdated, but all of the animals seem healthy so that is a minor complaint.

Starting off, a Chilean Flamingo (Phoenicopterus chilensis) takes a nap in the heat of the day.

And that's the end! Please let me know your thoughts, or if any species is particularly rare that I do not know about. Also, do you like the long format or should I split zoos with many pictures into multiple parts? Does it matter? I'll see you soon with pictures from the Erie Zoo next!

Nice again! You managed to show us an interesting selection despite half of the animals being out of sight in the zoo. African pygmy geese are some of the most beautiful ducks in the world - no wonder that I made a figurine of this species! That's not a magpie goose, but a spur-winged goose (Plectropterus gambensis). That reindeer have trully impressible antlers! I wonder how they manage to mix eagles with ducks in same exhibit. The submerged tortoise pic is visually oustanding, if only the tube at right side was missing it would be very apt for a winner in a photographic contest. And curious to see the use of plushes as enrichment for lemurs!

Thank you for letting me know about the goose! You’re absolutely right on the identification and I will change it. The eagle has several perches in a netted area above the artificial pond where the duck, turtle, and some frogs and fish are kept. It is really fascinating. I try to keep my photos in the same aspect ratio, but thanks to your suggestion I may crop the tortoise photo to be more square to exclude the pipe from the picture :)

Here is an updated square crop of the tortoise photo. Pardofelis was right, this is much nicer.

All your series of photos are very interesting and are certainly a reward for great effort. A little too late, I still have to ask you, because no one else did, what happened to a runaway bobcat? Shocked
