I do so love going to the zoo. Our local zoo Reid Park Zoo is just the right size (especially if you have little kids). It takes a little over an hour to walk the whole zoo (a bit more if you like to linger). They have at 10am feed the giraffe (awesome) and one of my favorite things to do. They recently lost it's polar bear, Snow, to an undiagnosed heart problem. Snow (July 2012)
Squirrels having breakfast with the tortoise. I don't think he is very happy!
Love the giraffe's ...their patterns are just beautiful
Herbie pretty big guy, weighs about 500 lbs. He was caught out in the wild about 50 years ago so they don't know how old he is!
