Animals are Lazy! – Edinburgh Zoo

One of my favourite overheard remarks at the weekend was ‘Animals are just so lazy!’

Can’t see why anyone should think that. Or can I?

I remember explaining to a workmate why penguins no longer need to fly in evolutionary terms. Her response was ‘no they are just lazy birds’

apparently there are only 36 of these Amur leopards left on the Chinese/Russian border.

If big cats have made a kill and eaten they can sleep for 22 hours out of 24.

The south and central American jaguars come in two different colour schemes; black,

and spotted, makes choosing suitable pyjamas easy I suppose.

However some younger animals, like this baby pygmy hippo were a bit more active.
