A trip to the zoo is always fun, but this particular trip there was some cool things that we saw that I wanted to share...
|I have been to this zoo several times, but this was the first time I really noticed the elephant...|
|Designed entirely out of butterfly shapes!!!|
|Carlee was our guide.|
|The giraffes and elephants were still in the barn, and we got to see them really close up! The pictures inside didn't turn out well but it gives you an idea how close we were to the giraffes!|
|Then we got to see the vet taking a blood sample from the elephant. I thought that was pretty cool, but the kids were more fascinated when she reached her trunk through the bars to pick up a carrot from the floor.|
|The lions were more active than I have ever seen them - usually they are sleeping on these rocks!|
But the coolest part of the day was hearing one of the lions roaring. I tried to get it on video but it is hard to hear - you will know why when you watch it.
