We went to the Zoo TWICE this weekend.
Yesterday (also known as John's birthday), we saw the McCaws, the gibbon, the meerkats, the alligators, the tigers, the cougars, the lemurs, the red pandas, the snow leopards, the guenons, the golden eagle, Francis, Craig, the African crowned crane, the bongo, the zebras, ostriches and elans.
Today, we saw the lorkeets, the red river hogs, the African elephants and the giraffe. We even got to see the keepers putting the McCaws out... very cool.
Both days, we were there between 9 - 9:30 a.m., a GREAT time to be at the zoo. Right away when the zoo opens, all the animals are awake, active and there aren't as many people to navigate.
This morning, we were the first people to visit the Lorkeet's... it was AWESOME. They were swarming the keeper when we walked in... and then they swarmed us. It was so much FUN.
If you want to see pics of our two day zoo adventure, go here. John also got some great shots of a Lorkeet trying to pick my nose. Heh.
Go to the Zoo.
