Noted with thanks for thes photos. Agree, never thouht about how you'd weigh a lion or cheetah, etc. My favorite has to be that first photo of the owl, acting like if I don't look then nothitng bad will happen.

Yes, Interesting.... never thought ab this.
All pics saved.
for some reason: the bullfrog "took" my heart; but the Sumatran Tiger (of course) the Most... Loveble & Loveble. How could "they" manage to weigh Him/She???? Loving Amazing Tigers Muchas.
Thank you, Cher ~~ xOxOxO

I saw this on Tv how they were figuring out ways to weigh all the animals and the (I'm not sure?) one in the photo.

I don't like zoos either. No exception. Only sanctuaries for animals ,act..that cannot survive on their own or need help getting back into their world. It was interesting watching to see how they were weighing the animals, etc... but I watched probably 2 minutes of it last night on TV.

Thank You for the post.
