We did miss a few activities - like feeding the giraffes, I would love to feed a giraffe - so we just might have to go back...
Okay, today I won't babble so much. I'll share some of my photos instead. =)
Seeing an alligator in the zoo is cool, but I wouldn't want to meet this dude in the wild, LOL.
I forgot what kind of bird this is. It's pretty, anyway. :-)
There were plenty of places where you could go into the bird habitats and even feed them.
Man's closest relative, the Chimpanzee.
I so want to rub that belly. And baby-talk. I bet you can tell from the look on her face I was babytalking; she looks like, "What the hell is wrong with you, are you stupid?" LOL!
Biggest dragonfly I saw in my life. So pretty!
They had aquatic life forms too, and a Manatee hospital. Those photos didn't turn out too well, but I like this one. =)
A regal eagle! All the eagles they had were hurt in the wild to the point where they can no longer fly. Now they can enjoy a retirement with free food for the easy task of entertaining tourists.
