Houston Zoo | Photo Heavy

 Giraffe feeding. Surprise twinkle lights.Houston Zoo is well worth a visit and very competitively priced (certainly far cheaper than London Zoo).  They have a successful breeding program and at the time of our visit, there were loads of babies on view.  My favourite?  Annabelle, the baby Mandrill who was born on 29 November.

I left them alone for about 10 minutes on Christmas Eve and when I got back to them, they were being interviewed by a local Houston TV channel.The Brainy One was edited out, but you can see and hear The Boy Child at around the 1 minute mark: http://www.khou.com/story/news/local/2014/12/24/houstonians-racing-to-finish-last-minute-christmas-shopping/20883797/
