With the temperatures in the 70s combined with bright blue skies and sunshine, Denis and I made a break for it to visit the Wildlife World Zoo-- the first opportunity we'd had to use our brand-new membership cards. Both of us tried to exhaust our camera batteries, and I thought I'd share a dozen photos that I took.
I hope all you animal lovers enjoy!
|One of our first stops was the Baby Animal Nursery where we saw Onyx, a jaguar. He was quite vocal about being alone.|
|Dozer, the baby tapir, was (sort of) awake from his nap.|
|Swans are beautiful, aren't they?|
|Sometimes it's best to let sleeping badgers lie.|
|Here's our local poisonous lizard, the Gila (HEE-luh) Monster. The patterns on its back remind me of Native American pottery I've seen.|
|I think these ring-tailed lemurs were getting ready to watch rush-hour traffic.|
|Baby Arabian Oryx|
|African Crested Porcupine|
|A disgruntled prairie dog|
|A meerkat snoozing in the sun|
I've got more photos I can share. Would you like to see them?
