A day out at Phnom Tamao rescue centre ...

... we don't know how we could resist from kidnapping a baby monkey!!!



... macaques were everywhere and tried to steal the fruit we had just bought to feed (also) other animals ...


... like giant squirrels ...

... strange looking storks ...


... civets ...


... a friendly deer ...

... porcupines ...

... otters (Ernst used up all the fish that was meant for other tourists, too ... ouch) ...





















 ... adorable gibbons ... they also wanted a back rub ...


... relaxing a bit in the shade for lunch (delicious and vegan ...) ...


... before moving on to the tigers (7 - some ex pets, some from a tiger farm) ...


 ... crazy looking binturongs (kind of large, sweet opossums) ...














... and the lovely elephant Lucky ...



... some scary pythons ... we managed to arrive at feeding time ... 20 living chickens on the menu ... time for Isabella to move on ...


... and finally sun bears and moon bears ...


 ... before coming back to Phnom Penh in time for sunset ...

... all in all a very enjoyable day ... pity that the wildlife in Cambodia is in a really miserable state, though ...
