More to love at the Greenville Zoo

I took dozens of pictures at the Greenville Zoo last summer, and published a number of posts about my visits: one on apes, another on big cats, and a third on the zoo’s giraffes.

But there are a few other animals (and birds) that didn’t fit in any of those categories. They are worth a mention, too.

The giant anteater is fascinating to watch, and at first glance, due to its varied coloration and big, bushy tail, I found it hard to figure out what I was looking at!

This oddly put together animal is a giant anteater.

The rhea, a flightless bird related to the ostrich, is an outsized critter, too.

Baby rhea kept close to its mama.

The zoo includes a small lagoon, a delightful find for bird lovers like me. I found some breathtaking black swans . . .

Love the curly feathers!

Well, hello there!

There was even a sweet pair of mallard ducks. I spied them nestling together when I heard the Mr quietly sharing sweet words with his lady.

If Mr. Mallard hadn’t been talking so softly to his mate, I would’ve walked right past this couple.
