.. where Ikea is meeting other animals in the Zoo

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

Here comes the last set of fotografs that i have from my trip to Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo few weeks ago. apparently, there are many more fun animals to see in the zoo besides my brothers giraffes that i was talking about in the last post. so, first of all, there are, of course, my friends meerkats:


Hello, look here! it’s me, Ikea! I think he heard, hehe

Guess what, there is a meerkat on this fotograf! staring right at me. as well as on this next one. these meerkats are not very easily noticed with this background you know :)

so, after a good chat with meerkats, we went for a skyride across the park. i have to say i used the chance to take a few bites from the treetops as well…


but here’s a little areal view of the tortoise on blanks of wood. apparently sunbathing :)

onwards, to the big white cats:



so, here i tried to ask them why they look exacly like zebras? but somehow i could not go near enough so they could hear me. anyway, i think the zoo did not have more room for zebras, so they have zebra-colour big white cats instead. (you know, there are zebras also, together with giraffes for example on this fotograf and hippos, but not that many..)
or, maybe the tigers got loose and ate some zebras :( and now because of that they all turn white like that? many questions unanswered..

and here’s me with a bunch of alligators. they all slept there like treetrunks and were not much fun at all. so only one fotograf of them:

but here, a question – what kind of animal is on this next fotograf and what is going on?


apparently, there is a shiamang feeding a baby shiamang, as you can see from this next foto where i am trying to make a shimp impression:


Of course, there are many more animals in this zoo, but i didn’t fotograf all of them because they were busy making other things. then, many were on a lunchbreak also and some others did not want to be fotografed at all for some reason. but you can go and check them out, like for example my funny friends lemurs :)

and for all meerkat fans, here’s a link to a meerkat cam on Cheyenne Mountain Zoo – they are out when there is no snow.

.. where Ikea is meeting real giraffes!!!

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea! (updated)

So, like i said, i finally had the chance to meet my brothers!! I have to say, they are in the zoo and not in the wild, but hey – i also flew on the plane! I have to say, i was very exited, so i almost forgot to take fotografs. so you’ll see these have been taken by other people. not to mention the fotografs not done by the place where they were given cookies. i will post some video link on that on twitter/facebook later on. so, without much more saying, here come the fotografs:

guess how many giraffes on this out-of-focus fotograf:

Hello there, it’s me, Ikea here! This waaay!!

Ok now, what is your name?

(well, it’s either Boris, Randall or Billy i think). and the answer for the question asked earlier above is four :) now, let’s see if you get how many giraffes you find on these two:

Okou, a little scary this place. right next to actually hippos :)

That’s if for now. i have to say we did not know back then that they had three more giraffes behind-the-scenes: Bengwa, Timmy and Tango Tango (Ugandan giraffe). So if you go there, take the safari tour and say hi from me! Here’s some more fotografs of me and this skull on facebook too :) But my meetings with other animals at this zoo already in the next post!

..where Ikea is sunbathing in S. Florida

Hello there! It’s me, Ikea!

Now, I have to tell you about my trip to florida when I was vacationing. You may already know that i have this one favorite hobby to sunbathe. In fact, this is one of the favorite hobbies of all giraffes, you know. That’s why we have these big brown spots – from sunbathing a lot!

So, when I was in florida, i had to go and try out these beaches. and then i made some fotografs. Here are some of them taken in Melbourne beach area. First, i discover this small hole:

.. then, luckily i also find this cool orange spade for digging:

.. and voilà, here comes a big hole!

here, it’s me talking to my shade. as you know, i like shades a lot too!

.. and now, some sea as well. i think it is not obvious, but there are thousands of fish on this fotograf. unfortunately, they are very small, even tiny ones right in the middle of these waves!

i had to take out my slippers because of this hot-hot sand. It was definitely the hottest sand since mexico, hehe :)


So secondly, I also checked out the beach in Key West. Not so many waves there, i’m afraid, even less small fish. So not too many fotografs this time. But at least a few proper fotografs of me sunbathing :)



So that’s it for this time. I still have a few fotografs of me in the Tampa Zoo, so i hope to get those posted quite soon as well! CU later!

hmm, what’s this doing here …?
