Smithsonian National Zoo - Golden Lion Tamarin

I love zoos and natural history museums. They offer an opportunity to learn about animals that we ordinarily wouldn’t come into close contact with (in some cases, thankfully) and allow us to develop an appreciation for nature.

During my visit to the Smithsonian National Zoological Park I saw a lot of interesting animals: cheetahs, black bears, pandas, meerkats, baboons, crocodiles, etc. Warning: you might want to stop reading here and skip to the pictures. The animal that stood out most was probably a Sumatran Orangutan that sent my mom heading for the exit as it continuously regurgitated and consumed the contents of its stomach.
