In keeping with the theme of day - lighter stuff, here are some funny signs from hither and tither. I got the zoo theme and some of the pics from this post by Ivman.
The number of stories every year of people who go too close to animal enclosures have made some zoo keepers come up with innovative ways to encourage people to keep a safe distance!
Then of course, every self respecting zoo has to prevent it's over-enthusiastic visitors from believing they are the only source of nourishment for the 'poor things'! Basically - don't feed the animals!!
The other thing to watch out for with animals (or birds) around is of course their big jobs! Anyone who has taken a walk down the bombing corridor in CMC, Vellore will tell you the same thing!
And finally, what every zoo-keeper desperately tries to make us humans understand - Leave the animals alone! Just look. Don't bother them. In the first picture however, the zookeeper seems to have mistaken a lion for a tiger. The last picture comes from our small local zoo in Shillong! Yes, Shillong has a zoo! Bring your kids!
