What a simply delightful day - note for future reference, zoos are highly underrated. Today, children, I discovered bongos and congo buffalo, the latter deliciously tufty and generally wonderful specimens of what can be done with a bit of imagination and some excess fur. Bongos are not drums, nor are they drunk in the congo, um or otherwise. Stripey ginger okapi types. Excellent! Another tip for successful zoo going expeditions is to go with folk who know it inside out and work at Birdworld so they can tell you exciting facts about, er, birds. Only downside is that aforementioned folk will inevitably sneer at zoo's inferior bird keeping facilities and until you've been to Birdworld this can be quite confusing. Rock on congo buffalo! Oh yes!
