I had a family day at the Franklin Park Zoo and had some real cool experiences. Check it out!
This is the camel I rode. I got to ride a camel. It is a camel I have ridden on. What a ride!
One giraffe was sick but we got to see this one with his zebra friend!
The zebra was apparently photo shy. Or maybe he was just looking for nicer grass.
Isn’t this statue of Kiki and Kimani adorable?
Gorillas love their blankets…
Slitherinn. Slytherin. I get it! I wonder what kind of animal is in there?
“Thanksssss, amiga, for snapping my photo while I’m trying to ssssleep.”
This definitely looks like something you would find in the Slytherin common room.
The one animal I wanted to see and it was hiding behind rocks while napping. I’ve always had a soft spot for tapirs since I learned about rain forest animals in elementary school.
He’s watching me.
“…Three geese a-laying…”
“Two black swans.”
“5 Kan-ga-roooooos.” Okay, so the song’s out of order, but now you’re thinking about Christmas.
I guess it was just better grass he was looking for.
And the other male lion cat napping.
Isn’t he adorable?
Oh, look! He got up!
And he’s down again for more snoozing. Look at those teeth!
Bongo. I just love saying that. Bongo, bongo, bongo. Not the drum but the antelope.
It’s great to get new experiences, even simply visiting a zoo, to get a glimpse of a world in which you don’t normally live. The zoo had a few different worlds: the Savannah, the Outback, and a tropical rain forest complete with running water and a baby gorilla (not pictured because the photos didn’t come out well).
