18 Hilarious Signs Spotted At The Zoo

We do always love a good funny sign, and these eighteen signs spotted at various zoos across the world definitely fit into that helpful (and not so helpful) category. Did you know that hippos could projectile poop at you through the fence, for instance? I did not, and I will be a lot more careful when observing these big guys in the future, lemme tell you.

Some of these signs are a bit obvious (don't stick your fingers into a deadly animal's cage, for instance... ya' dummy), but others are straight up random and hilarious. Click through the gallery to see them all, and next time you go visit a zoo, don't say I didn't warn you.

"Meet Norman with 9 fingers. Don't feed the monkeys."

This is NOT what Norman's friends meant when they told him to "give the monkey the finger."

Well that explains it! As an aside, have you ever visited a flamingo exhibit? Good lawd up in heaven, those pink buggers STINK to high heaven! You can smell them from the parking lot! I wonder if it's because they eat fish, or if it's just bad hygiene (I'm kidding).  Either way, gross.

Having known one or two llamas in my life, I can confirm that they are a**holes and you will most likely need to be reminded not to punch them right in the kisser.

Something about the way this wheelchair guy has his hand up like that makes me think he's enjoying this wild ride to a toothy doom waiting below. "Wheeeeeee!"

This is so true, isn't it? The animals are always either sleeping, stinky, or sleeping while being stinky. They're still cute, though!

We wouldn't want fish with a nasty, unhealthy habit. That would be bad.

Oh darn, and here I was hoping to go for a nice leisurely lion ride today.

(Yes, yes; I'm sure this sign was on a statue of a lion or something like that, but it's still funny, so there.)
