A Day at the Zoo

28 10 2007

I took Alex to the zoo today. We had a great time. I brought my camera and got some cool pictures of animals. It was hard to get good Alex pictures, though, because he stayed in the stroller much of the time.

One fun thing about visiting the zoo near Halloween: For many of the animals, instead of feeding them as normal, they hide their food inside of a pumpkin. So here are some river otters wrestling with a pumpkin to get their meal:

Apparently, they did the same thing with the jaguar, too — stuffed some raw chicken inside of a pumpkin. (Yum! I’ll have to try that for Thanksgiving!) While I was a few minutes late to see the jaguar wrestling with the pumpkin, apparently that little change of routine put the cat into a good mood. She was happy to be near the glass with the rest of us.

Good thing there's glass


Most of the other pictures I took were of animals. If you want to see them, click here:


I’ll just leave you with this picture. Yes, that fuzzy brown lump in the background is a Grizzly bear.
