A day at the zoo is where we (Ryan and I) could be found. Ryan and I hit the road at 9 as we had a 107 acre zoo to explorer. With over 4,000 animals of more than 800 species, our day was sure to be a fun one.
The Koala Bear was one of the first exhibits – Sweet little ones getting their rest.
The statue of the ancient condor – With a wing span of 7 – 10 feet
He’s just chillin’ on this beautiful day
The ever so cool Meerkat posing for her picture
W arrived just as the elephant was walking up to the feeder – He’s having lunch
So many different kinds of turtles – I have such a love for these creatures
A shot of Ryan with the turtles
He’s pretty cool
Extinct American Lion – The American Loins were about 25% larger than today’s African Lions.
We made a note of this
Sichuan Takin – Having a nice peaceful rest
Hey beautiful you
Addra Gazelle – Hails from Africa
Lesser Kudu – From Africa – Loved his horns
The Polar Bear – My very favorite zoo animal ever!
But I’ll keep my distance
And admire their beauty and respect his strength from afar
Hello Mr. Zebra – Your stripes are precise
The beautiful flamingos
Mr. Hippo having a swim
Now he is one cool cat as long as he’s on the other side of the fence
He was way back there pacing and pacing and I could hardly get a shot. Suppose he was hungry.
Just the two of them hanging out
We think we remember this being some sort of viper. Check out his wild looking head in the lower left.
Hey dude, I forget your name but you’re pretty awesome looking.
Hey “Big Boy”, I forget your name too
And you are certainly one big lizard
Such beautiful flowers and tropical trees. I just wasn’t thinking about taking pictures ’til the end.
Ryan shopping for souvenirs/gifts – He found a couple of really nice gifts
We had such a wonderful time and when it was all said and done, home was the place we wanted to be. Actually, we were both dreaming of a nice afternoon nap and resting our feet.
Ryan’s way of chillin’ in the pergola up on that rock – He’s out there with pen, paper and coffee – Working on lyrics for a new song for his band back home.
And this concludes another great day and visit with Ryan.
