Auckland Zoo.

 We just managed to be at the Spider monkey enclosure when a keeper came along to give them some pieces of melon as a treat. This one made use of his tail to form a self-hammock. Clever!
 The whole zoo was lovely, with water features and lush gardens throughout. The signage was very interesting, consisting of a series of simulated game watchers note books made of metal. This is a page of drawings of the animals that the mythical observer had seen.
     This book is mounted permanently on a rock and is again made of metal, quite amazing really.
I particularly liked the fabric for the upholstery of the bus seats, the ubiquitous silver fern, upper side of the fronds.
