Gentle Giant???

By marktc  
The first of my images from Dartmoor Zoo. Its a fab place to visit and they have some wonderful animals, obviously well loved.
There has just been a film released in the USA called "We bought a zoo" which is based on DZP starring Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.
Its a terrific place to visit as I hope some of my images for the next few days will illustrate.

Thanks as always for looking and all those that c and c on previous images...

That's a lovely close-up Mark, he looks gorgeous and so cuddly although am sure would be dangerous to do so!

I was wondering which zoo the movie was based on. Great close-up shot here, Mark.
