Zoo Coloring Pages

Why do we love to visit the zoo?  The animals, of course!  The landscaping is nice.  There may be other fun attractions.

But the critters draw the crowds!  So here they are (a few now, more later).  Drawings to color with photos to enjoy.


My giraffe photo taken at the Rio Grande Zoo in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I snapped this giraffe's pic at the Rio Grande Zoo in Albuquerque, New Mexico. 

Unfortunately, it blends in with the background a little too well!  I think it went ninja on me.

Here's a preview of what your coloring picture might look like.  I used photo shop to fill in its patches/spots.

Giraffe colored.


Crocodile at the zoo.
Photo of large crocodile I took at the Rio Grande Zoo.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but that's a 15 foot crocodile!  That massive beast was perched right near the railing. Smiling...

I think our leathery leviathan was hoping that a clumsy tourist would drop in for lunch.

Polar Bear

Polar Bear at Albuquerque, New Mexico Zoo.

I kinda get the feeling that this huge polar bear was looking for a tasty snack too!  Or maybe just a fun pool toy?    Not surprisingly, there were no volunteers in the crowd.

Palm Cockatoo

Simple drawing of a palm cockatoo.

Now that's a beautiful bird!  Those bright red cheeks really stand out against its dark gray feathers. 

Be sure to admire it from a distance.  It's powerful beak can crack nuts.  So don't offer it a finger to perch on!

Tiger Coloring Pages

A Tiger Licking Another Tiger.

The majestic tiger is the biggest cat currently walking the planet.  But for how much longer?  

This awesome beast (personal favorite!) is endangered due to territory loss.  Hope the zoo won't be the last place left for you.

Black and white drawing of a serval.
A Serval with her eyes closed.

This serval is one strange cat. 

She has a long thin body with long legs. 

But her head is rather small. 

Makes her look slightly odd.

But her coat has an interesting pattern, doesn't it?  How many cats have both stripes and spots?

She's a unique little beauty!

Have You Created a Masterpiece?

Did you take a dull coloring page and turn into an awesome work of art? Are you bursting with pride?
