The Pandas were a delight to see and wooed the assembled crowds. Superb.
The other species the kids were keen to see was Koala. I'd been fortunate to see wild Koalas in the wild near Melbourne a few years back and with little likelihood of us all going to Australia anytime soon it was a good opportunity to see the Eucalyptus munching rascals.
The think that Edinburgh Zoo was famous for when I was a kid was Penguins. They keep three species nowadays; King, Gentoo and Rockhopper. The numerous visitors appeared to enjoy these most engaging of birds and the zoo have certainly recognised this by investing in Penguin Rock - a bespoke facility for captive management and exhibit.
Plenty of other animals to see at Edinburgh zoo, I'll blog some pics of the other inhabitants separately
