Like these kangaroos - for example. They're not playing peek-a-boo or hugging. They wrestle with their very short arms and then balance on their tails and kick the daylights out of the other. I wouldn't want to mess with one of them.
As much as it was scary, it was impressive. Then I moved to my favorite part of the Zoo, Big Cat Country.
There were two new pumas, and they were the only two not napping at the time. Puma was doing a McKayla Maroney impression:
While the other meditated:
The snow leopards were snoozing, and then grooming each other:
The lone Amur tiger, spent most of the time napping, but deigned to look up at me (sort of) after lots of patient waiting:
The lions were particularly interesting - it's a whole family - mom, dad, and 2-3 offspring or at least younger lions.
Two of the youngest were wrestling each other:
And Mom and Dad had a bit of a fight:
And I think the oldest walked away:
I also visited the "River Wild" where animals like the elephants live... an area I rarely get to because it is on the opposite side of the park than I usually go to - it's also the newer part.
