Animals – on ice

A while ago, back in March, I seized the chance to see some exotic and unusual creatures in a cold climate…

First off were some joyful creatures from warm countries. They didn’t have any difficulty adapting to the icy conditions over here. Indeed, they seemed to thrive in the cold!

Gloria (the hippo) and Marty (the zebra)

Others were born on the ice – and graced us with their orange synchronized dancing..

And then, just when we thought we’d seen the best, magical winged creatures flittered and fluttered about, making proud parental hearts burst with pride.

If we can’t go to Madagascar, then the next best thing is to bring Madagascar to us!

  18. Those penguins look cute. Talking of Madagascar – I caught it when it was on BBC over Christmas. I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it, it being a kiddies film and all but I thought it was ever so good.

    How utterly charming :) It’s important to do things like this on occasion, isn’t it? Watching the dance of the penguins. Who wouldn’t have a good day after watching skating penguins? It’s like your nicest dreams come to life.
