Another place I have been meaning to visit for a long time yet didn’t make it there until recently is the Audubon Zoo. We did try to visit last Christmas, but showed up about 20 minutes before the zoo closed. Since Amanda has a membership and can bring a guest for free, we still browsed a bit. I saw the elephants and the lions and tigers, but there was so much more to see. Since last Friday was my Friday off (I love those bi-weekly holidays), we decided to finally visit the Audubon zoo. The flamingos are the first thing you see.
But the sample out front was just a small part of the huge flock.
Pete didn’t have too much time for flamingos, though. He just wanted to run and run.
And then you stumble upon some old Mayan ruins.
That’s where they keep the jaguars, but Pete wasn’t scared.
The spider monkies weren’t too far away.
And then the strangest-looking animal I have yet seen with my own two eyes, the anteater.
Rounding out our Mayan excursion were some lovely birds.
By this time, we needed a good sit.
Tune in tomorrow for alligators! bears! and footsie wootsies!
