A Trip to the Zoo

Since we have an annual membership to the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo (you know, The Little Zoo That Could?), we go fairly often. Yesterday was no exception. We arrived about 30 minutes before a wildlife presentation was to begin. We learned about (and was able to pet) beareded dragons, boa constrictor, guinea pigs, and ferrets. We also learned about Maccaws like 17 year old Bo. Isn't he pretty?

Bo was showing off for the camera!

We passed by an exhibit with baby goats, rabbits, and chickens. Can you believe how the sheep was letting her hold him like a baby? So sweet! His name was Chubaka. :)

See the little bitty black and white goat? That one was my favorite!! I would totally buy one if they stayed tiny like that. I love it!

This little fellow came to the fence and let me pet him. :)

Gators cooling off....

Before we left, the baby tiger exhibit was taking a break for lunch. But the handler, let us pet the baby Bengal and was gracious enough to let me get a picture of him.

We had a great time and learned a lot on our visit. Next time we go, we are going on a Camel Ride!

How nice of the handler to let you pet the baby Bengal. Looking forward to hearing all about your camel ride if you ever take one. :)

Ferrets are so nice, beautiful pictures, but one with the boa you don`t have? I am so curious to see it..
