A day at the zoo…

My kids were off of school, so I decided to take them to the zoo.

We all love the zoo, and I have been taking my kids to the zoo since they were very little. My Grandma used to buy us memberships. We used to go whenever we wanted. My daughter is very intelligent. She can tell me the name of the animal, it’s habitat and all these amazing facts. She is a science wiz!

I have many pictures, and videos. Hope you enjoy!

Do you have a favorite zoo animal?

I cannot pick one. The animals at the zoo amaze me in general.

I really like monkey’s and seals.

Here is a video of the giraffes at feeding time. I love their spots, their long necks. They are fascinating.

Hyena’s:

Video of the Hyena’s:

Lions, so handsome:

Seals! I love the seals! They had a seal show. I’m amazed by how they obey commands like high five, and lay down.

He’s laying down for her:

Orangutan’s. They were amazing. They were handling newspapers, clothes, and hay. They are very entertaining to watch, and funny.

The way he walks in the video is funny, they have character:

Penguins! I love the penguins!

Cute! Look at that while belly, and those eyebrows! Adorable!

Cute, they are cuddling.

Kangaroos! I love how they walk!

Baby Komoto Dragon.

A sloth! I love sloth’s. Too bad I can’t get a better picture!

Zebra. I love those stripes!

Yikes, look at those horns on the rino!

A snakes. I’m scared of snakes. I took a picture of the rattle snake so that I know what they look like, for when I go hiking.

They have a beautiful light display as well for the holidays:

Then we went to my parents house for dinner and I took pictures of her beautiful tree:

And she painted a new picture. She is quiet talented!

    I miss going to the zoo we use to go all the time but
    since we moved to Indiana we don’t really go no where
    cause when you learn how to live on a fixed income
    there’s a lot of things you don’t or can’t do.

      They may have senior days, but we live in Colorado, and they legalized weed, and the cost of living sky rocketed. We have not been able to go in about 5 years! We just got through paying all of our debt off so we used to really have to pinch our pennies. The zoo here is free if you have food stamps, but we don’t.

        I’ll be glad to get all our debt paid off too
        we don’t have a zoo or anything close
        enough to go to around where we are.

        Gas is over 3$ food went out the window
        price wise & now winter is just around the
        corner & god knows what that’s going to
        cost, we don’t have a fire place we are all
        electric but we keep it around 68 – 70

          Yes, it’s Ludacris! Gas is over 3 here, and groceries are ridiculous! I heard the price of natural gas went up, so our heating bills is going up.

    I’m glad that your family enjoys the zoo! I’ve visited zoos while on vacation in other countries and I always pray the animals are treated well. I can’t pick a favourite either but I’m particularly drawn to penguins.

    Love this post.

    We visited the zoo a while back and we have a small one near us that’s great for kids. Waiting for my little one to become a bit more aware of animals and we will take her again.

    Great photos and love the Christmas tree.

    Seems like you had a great day at the zoo. I love nature and all animals of course since they are part of it. I just cannot stand the idea that animals are kept prisoned so personally I am not a big fan of zoos.

      I know, I feel bad that they are in captivity, but the kiddos wanted to see them. I love animals as well. Thanks for the visit! =)

    It looks like you had a really fun day out! I must admit, I am not a fan of zoos, especially in recent years as I’ve learned more about animal welfare. I haven’t visited one in years. I do absolutely love animals and especially love seeing them in the wild. My favourite is Elephants!!

      I love the elephants as well. I think it is sad those wild animals are held captive, but the kids wanted to go. I enjoyed it though. Thanks for the visit!

    It sounds like you had a fun day, I’m not the biggest fan of zoos unless they’re there for conservation purposes, but I know kids love it as a day out. I wouldn’t have wanted to get too close to the snakes either.

    Zoos are so fun! I like the birds because we see them all the time, even in the city, but they fly away so fast before we get a close look at them. Your mother’s Christmas tree and painting are lovely!

      I like seeing the birds as well. There’s a room where you get to be with the Macaws. I love that! Thank you for the visit!

    All your pictures are great, but my favorite is the lion. He looks like he is posing to be Aslan in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Your mom is talented–beautiful picture!
