For my 30th birthday recently my lovely husband treated me to a Red Panda Encounter at Wellington Zoo.
It was an amazing experience and so much more than I was expecting. I thought we'd get to go in the enclosure and learn about the red pandas from the keeper.
What I didn't realise is we got to hand-feed them and they sat on our laps. It was awesome to be so close to wild animals.
I already thought red pandas were cute but now I know they are amazingly cute :-)
We fed them bits of pear and red grapes and got to ask lots of questions to their keeper.
This is just some of the great photos I managed to take on the day.
We were in the enclosures for about 30 minutes total and I loved every minute.
It was an awesome experience.
