Griffon Vulture/Tortoise/Goldman Bat Exhibit - Oakland Zoo in Oakland, CA (Part 4)

I know that I am posting these photos a little bit late, but here they are anyways. So last year (12/7/2012), my biology professor took the whole class on a field trip (as one of our labs) to the Oakland Zoo in Oakland, CA to teach us biology. While I was there, I took many photos of the animals and I am here to show you them. I have to say, I am not a big fan of zoos, but it sure is a great place for animal photos! If you love animal photos like me, definitely give your local zoo a visit. All of these photos were shot using my Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Lens on my Canon EOS 7D.

Today, I just have photos of the Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus), Aldabra Giant Tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea), and Macro Bats.

Photos of the Aldabra Giant Tortoise (Aldabrachelys gigantea). Doesn't look like it is alive does it? That is what I thought until it moved slightly. I thought it was just a model of a tortoise to keep the real one company. Nope, it was the real one.

A photo of a macro bat. Because these animals live in dark areas, the exhibit was very dark so I had to drive my ISO up a lot to get a shot of them. That is the reason why the photo looks grainy. 

Another photo of the macro bat. Again, the high ISO made the photo very grainy and also there were some glare on the glass. 

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed viewing them. Next time I will have photos of amphibians and reptiles such as turtles and frogs. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
