We went to the zoo this weekend. I was quite impressed. It was humongous & very clean. Very nice big areas for all of the animals to live. Not stinky at all....even the primate house.
Some fun things:
Sadie making a monkey face.
A bald eagle.
In the butterfly room:
Animatronic dinosaurs. Sadie was a little afraid of these.
Also cool....seeing giraffes running (yes, they have enough room to run), touching stingrays, seeing polar bears, seals, elephants, chimpanzees, gorillas & the most humongous fish I've ever seen in my life. It had to be like 200 lbs. It was swimming with the sharks. It was really gross.
Not so cool, but pretty funny: Sadie petting a squirrel. The squirrels in the picnic area at the zoo are pretty used to getting fed & not as afraid of humans as the squirrels in the park, I guess. We were watching Sadie chase after this squirrel, thinking nothing of it & before we know it she's squatting down talking to it & then starts petting it! We were a ways from her so yelling really didn't help. Dylan went running for her & luckily she didn't get bit or get her eyes clawed out.
We all had a lot of fun. It was a good day.
