The Polar Bears are no longer there. They are redoing their exhibit and it should be done next year. I can't wait to see the completed project because it will give the bears 10 times the space they had before with much more room and pools to swim in.
This strange looking duck was swimming in the ponds in the park. I have no idea what it is but the warty growths on its face made it quite hideous.
The Elephant exhibit was just redone also. They have much more room to move around, a mud pit to play in and pools for cooling off.
Tae and Morgan checking out a learning table with some animal skins on it. Tae learned that every Zebra has its own pattern of stripes much like a human's fingerprints with no two ever being alike. He was amazed at how bristly the hair on the Zebra was.
Tae checks out a piece of Walrus tusk and an African carved drinking Gourd.
The Snow Leopard is just beautiful but very old.
The Pink Flamingos are just gorgeous. I don't know how they can sleep on one leg like that.
This is a Cavy. It looks like a cross between a deer, rabbit and kangaroo.
We were able to watch feeding time for the seals.
This termite mound was very cool. I wonder if I can build one in the backyard with the homeschoolers. Seems easy enough.
The kids played by the wetlands and were facinated with the huge Carp that came right up to the edge of the pond. They are always close up.We also spotted this Canadian Goose sitting on a clutch of eggs. I counted at least 12 eggs.
Splat! But she's still smiling and was laughing hysterically especially after I showed her this picture. Good things kids can bounce.
