It started to get pretty warm and the animals do what they do, lay down and hide. I guess when that happens, you make the most of it and I was pretty happy to get the opportunity for this next picture.
So, as the day started to heat up and it got close to lunch-time, we found a nice cool place to eat. Buying lunch for a family of four at the zoo? Your loan has been approved, sir. You can eat now. Yikes.
So, off to one of their cooler exhibits. They have a Lory enclosure that is a really neat thing for the kiddos.

And that's what happened, the little guy in green was actually pulling our zoo tickets out of my pocket. I guess he thought it was the key to a slick escape. The ugly green "cover" shirt with leaves on it was also a hit with the little guys. They were pulling at it with their beaks. You can buy these little condiment cups full of nectar at the concession stand and walk on in with them. As soon as I walked in, one of the little guys pounced and actually pulled the lid off to get at the stuff. It was kind of funny.
