Let’s Go To The Zoo!

Last week I took a little trip to see some of my favorite people. While I was there we took a little trip to the zoo. I forgot how much I love looking at animals that are just not part of my every day life.  Enjoy the pictures!

We were greeted by peacocks! I had no clue that 1. they could fly, and 2. they had such a pitiful cry! It was such a sad squawk!

I love elephants…such huge massive creatures….that seem so gentle.

This one was “leaning” on a post – it made me think of Joe Jr in While You Were Sleeping….leaning….lol

The Giraffe exhibit had to have been my favorite! We were able to feed them and boy did they know why were were there!

This is a picture of the babies laying down in the field.

One of the babies came up to get some food too!

Am I the only person who had no clue that they ate off the ground too?

This guy was going for ALL the crumbs left behind – his tounge was MUCH, MUCH longer than what this picture shows!

I was tempted to leave my address with this stork….maybe since we’ve moved so much they’ve lost track of where I live and have forgotten to bring me my baby!

These Tortoises were MASSIVE.  I forget how big they really get. It was neat to actually see one get up and move around though!

At the end of our zoo trip we stopped to see the Hippo – and we got there just in time! They were going to feed him! We found out later that you can pay some money to go and have an “experience” with one of the animals – that is what these girls were doing.

It was funny – the hippo knew it was lunch time – he just stayed right there the entire time waiting for his lunch.

The best part was the watermelon, They threw it in his mouth and when he bit down the juice came flowing out of the sides of his mouth….it was awesome!
