Photos of Giraffes and Mr Mendoza the Tapir at Mogo Zoo on South Coast of New South Wales

Here are some of the photos I took of the many and varied animals at Mogo Zoo.  This is a privately owned zoo, and they are doing some wonderful work with breeding programs.  Recently they bred two white lions, and they had a baby giraffe when we went.
