The plethora of unique animals here never fails to entertain me, so thought I’d share a few photo highlights of critters (or representations thereof) we’ve encountered over the last 7 months here in Mexico City and beyond!!
This dog in Condesa seems to be saying both "I just want a glimpse of the action" and "I know, seriously, I can't believe I'm wearing a man's polo shirt either."
What's not fun about a bear pretending to attack your children?
Whenever I walk through the parks here, I find it hilarious how much people seem to love squirrels. At least 60% of the time when I see a squirrel, there is someone taking a photo of it. Why are they so novel???
I wouldn't call these Telcel moose mascots the brightest bulbs in the pack... Luckily I am old enough to know better, but for most children, seeing a photo of themselves next to a moose who is sticking its hoof into its neck & having 2 beady eyes staring back could cause some serious trauma...
John & co went on a horse-riding trek in La Marquesa, just a bit west of Mexico City. My favorite photo was the one of this wee, little horse looking optimistically towards Emily while John got a bit too close for comfort.
I enjoyed this majestic-looking rooster and his colorful backdrop... If only it weren't for that pesky house-arrest bracelet.
I decided being a fat bee was not worth $180 last Halloween.
Obviously, if a pig is on display for Día de los Muertos, it just makes sense that the pig's bones would be pink.
Mexico seems to enjoy making their dogs appear as tough as possible, even when it is a lost cause. The other fan-favorite I see at mercados is an "FBI" doggie sweater, which I think may actually have the reverse effect of putting your dog in danger... Though to be fair, I have yet to see a "DEA" doggie outfit...
This Christmas pig seemed so.... lifelike...?
