Jerusalem Zoo: Peeing and Humping


I went to the zoo a couple days ago with a few friends. It's a nice zoo, with all the animals you could hope for. Don't worry, this peeing primate was just about the first thing I saw too. He was sitting there, squatting by the moat, staring at his audience. I guess he didn't think much of us.




















Penguins in the Middle East? Yeah, we've got that.





That's a random lion tranq dart inside their cage area. They were just chillin'. I guess they already shot up? Junkie lions, who would have guessed?





And finally, a tiger mounts his lady. This was probably the best zoo experience EVER! Sex, drugs, exhibitionist urination - is this a zoo or San Francisco?

The zoo was actually really cool. It's called the "Biblical Zoo." What that means is that for each animal they put a passage from the Bible where such an animal is mentioned. Snakes, various types of rams, goats, and antelopes, insects and lizards and giraffes; everything.

I was loving the desert range they had. Giraffes, hippos, ostriches, rams, zebras - all living together. A massive hippo walked next to the alpha giraffe, an easy kill it looked like to me, and they just brushed by like any two New Yorkers not giving a fiddler's fart about the other. We've got a lot to learn from these beasts.

Here's one safe for the whole family. I don't want my grandma to think I'm a weirdo or something...

Looks like great fun! My only question is regarding the mention of penguins in the Tanakh.

We just returned from JazzFest and am so delighted to have opened your blog(RSS feed). The pictures in this post are so entertaining, as are the captions to match. The monkey is hilarious. Of course, the pics of you are my favorites! Love you son. Mom

William - I don't remember what they put for that one. Not all of them have pasukim from Tanakh. But, I think they probably put one of the passages about different birds that we aren't quite sure about. I'd have to go back and look, though!
