It's a big zoo with a lot of animals that we don't have here in Salt Lake. Right after we arrived, they were feeding the chimpanzees so we hurried there to see them. They had fruits and vegetables and there were a lot of chimps, including several babies. I love chimps. They are so fascinating and intelligent. (Although soon Alfredo began to tease me because I kept saying, "Oh, I love __________....fill in the name of whatever animal we were looking at.")
|I can't remember the name of these animals...they are from Africa and are similar to gazelles...but they looked so graceful and lovely to me. I stood there just watching them for awhile.|
|In the mid afternoon, we bought lunch. My cost saving strategy? Buy 4 meals for the 5 of us and I eat everyone's leftovers. It was plenty and worked well.|
|Not a very good picture, but this is a Tasmanian devil. It had just been fed meat and was tearing into the meat with ferocity. They are ugly creatures and fierce.|
I liked that this zoo had a lot of animals that we haven't seen before. It was interesting to read about them. I loved seeing the koalas, another favorite. And lions and elephants and so many other animals.
|We stayed busy and so on car trips, the girls often dozed off. Not Michelle and she was usually a good sport about having her sister lean against her.|
