Caleb being snuggly on the bus
At the entrance
The same shot nine years ago! :)
First we saw the otters - they were so playful!
Look at this silly guy!
On the panda sculpture
One of the beautiful elephants
One of the most special things about this zoo is their giant pandas!
This guy was so funny - he made it seem like it took so much effort to lie and roll around on this shelf
How cute is he!?
This is the second one - just chillin' and eating bamboo
...and the third one, also eating. They eat primarily bamboo (which can't be very calorie dense), so they eat ALL. THE. TIME!)
Selfie of the Cabey Baby and I
That's one cool Sea Lion
Caleb and Leo didn't really know each other at all, but they really hit it off!
The sea lions showing off
All the kids, waiting for the sea lion demonstration to start
The trainers demonstrated all the behaviors the sea lions are trained to do so that when they have to see a vet, they are used to showing their teeth, their tails, their bellies, etc
Everyone intent on the show
Touching some real sea lion fur
We were surprised that the Andean bears were doing anything but sleeping!
I love this shot of the kids with an Ariapima
A tankful of Red Piranha
They aren't very attractive, although not as evil as cartoons make them look
This Sucker Catfish was hilarious!
Some pretty fish
Bird Eating Spider
Love this group photo of us all - practically perfect!
This was really cool, it's beetle artwork...
...made out of beetles!!
The kids looking at the world's most poisonous frog - the Golden Dart Frog
Two scary lions ;)
A pretty waterfall - it was a pretty hot day, so we were thankful for the spray
This is Leo's signature pose :)
Who naps like this??
This guy definitely had his eye on me
How cute are they together?
Highlight of the day - the long awaited Komodo Dragon
He's almost cute!
On an (incredibly hot!) anteater sculpture
Moriah was super excited to see the Fennec Foxes, and even brought her stuffed one along, but they were very elusive
Peeking through a whole at one
Larger Malay Mouse-Deer
Some cute Meerkats
I think this is hilarious ;)
After leaving the zoo we got Slurpies for the kids, decided to walk back, instead of taking the bus or metro, and most of us took naps...
The sweet boy who napped with me
One of my monkeys
Sorry I got a few days behind - I will try hammer out a few posts tonight!
