We joined some other homeschooling families for a trip to that drive-through zoo park near here. We split into two cars - one for girls and one for boys and a couple moms! I was happy to be with the girl group! It looked wild and crazy in the boy van! For now, I will just share the animal photos. I will post pictures with people in them later! We are off on another "field trip" today for bowling with a local group. Watch out pins, these kids are looking for strikes and spares!
I wonder when the kids will ask why he is always sitting there and never flies away!
These turtles were out sunning on some logs in the pond that the eagle's island is in.
I feel for the guy out there alone. "Hey, guys! Wait for me!"
We meet again. The Bison and I.
Did you know this is a Bison and not a Buffalo? Buffalo are not native to North America!
This frisky bear hopped in and enjoyed the water.
Branch insisted that the barrel was his "huny pot" - all bears have one!
I couldn't resist... CHECK OUT that TONGUE!!
This big ol' hippo wandered out of his little mud hole for a bit.
It was kind of fun to see how his body moved. The girls giggled about the jiggly tummy and how cute he was. CUTE? Then why aren't all my little jiggles called cute? Mine are far closer to cute baby chubs than this hippo's portly paunch! Hmmm... not fair.
Camels, lying down? Well, I'll be...
We can stop to see them without risk of spitting in the windows!!
This is a White Handed Gibbon.
Apparently, wheat bread crusts are not a part of the diet for a White Handed Gibbon and neither are they for the "special ducks" and "special koi" in the pond.
Leave the wheat bread crusts to the (real) wild ducks and geese at other ponds!
Just doin' my part to spread the word...
