Virginia Zoological Park, part 2: Asia - Trail of the Tiger #1

Once inside, I had the pleasant feeling that I was visited a very well kept zoo.  The spacious plaza and well marked wide paths were inviting.  And I used my Maryland Zoo Membership to get in for just $6.48.  A very reasonable price indeed.  So lets begin at the beginning of the Asia - Trail of the Tiger area.

Bornean Orangutan, Pongo pygmaeus
 The area for the Orangutans was large and included a large interior area as well.  For the most part the animals were just waking up and now so active.  Some were still sleeping inside.
 Across from the Orangutans on an island all their own was a family of Siamangs.

Siamang, Symphalangus syndactylus

Malayan Sun Bear, Helarctos malayanus euryspilus

Sarus Crane, Antigone antigone
