Zoo Day

Yesterday we went to the Zoo with my parents. The weather was gorgeous; it didn't feel like January at all. Many of the animals were out and enjoying the day as well.

The gorillas were very active, many came right up to the glass to check out us visitors. This kinda scared Daniel causing him to retreat into my dad's shoulder for fear of them. We told him he was safe and didn't need to be afraid so he would look back at the gorillas in timidity and with a meek voice say "Hello" while waving at them. But as soon as they approached the glass again he would turn away.


The monkeys were quite frisky, running, jumping and playing all over.


He is one good looking boy!


This was the first time I've seen the hippos out of the water. I didn't realize it, but apparently they are pygmy hippos with short stubby legs. I thought it seemed kinda funny to see these great big beasts with legs that leave their bellys hardly a foot from the ground.





This eagle caught a stray opossum in his cage. We were careful not to walk underneath as we didn't want his guts dripping on us.



We are blessed to have such a fantastic zoo in Fort Worth. It is ranked 5th in the nation!
