Love the strong colours on the neck of this bird contrasting with the darkness of its body!

When my children were small we went to the zoo weekly during the summer. They absolutely loved it!!

Such a nice picture. Animals do not always play nice when being photographed but you got a very pic.

All of these ostrich-type birds are so funny to watch! The cassowary is definitely the prettiest of them.

Love to visit zoo anytime..... I was at Mysore in 2006, but missed the zoo as the trip was an official one and time was short... Visited few other places including the Mysore palace off course....... Loved the picture.....
