Rab & Lesley's Second Big Trip

Day 53 - Honolulu Zoo

Not the first thing I saw but the only exhibit clearly marked as 'Hawaiian' - the Hawaiian Hawk

This is a Carpenter Bee. Quite big - about an inch long - and didn't like the camera getting too close
It became quite agressive but finally went back to work

A Kimodo Dragon. They are deadly dangerous, not so much from the physical damage they could do but because their mouths are coated in bacteria that would cause any wound to become infected
I have a soft spot for these but these ones have been fed too much carotene to give them the colour they normally get from eating blue green algae and brine shrimp
