|Betty and Jack Hanna. This is the only picture in this post that I didn't take.|
We had to walk past the polar bear exhibit to get to Africa. I love the back view of this dude sunning himself after a swim.
Heart of Africa includes a large open area for lions, giraffes, ostriches, gazelles, zebras and wildebeests.
My "old" friends might remember that I love the lions, so they get their own picture. Apparently there was some mating going on earlier in the day but we missed that.
More of the zoo:
We were also lucky enough to see some babies! The black and white colobus babies are only 3 weeks old (and apparently they're all white when they're little). And we saw the gorilla who is about a year old.
|I hate the fence in there, but these guys were so adorable!|
The weather couldn't have been more perfect and we got rockstar parking (because Michelle was driving, so of course we did). I hadn't been to the zoo in a long time and it was a great afternoon!
