Our membership card had a complete workout this past week. The zoo can get expensive if you don't have a membership. They now offer pay one price tickets for the tourists, but for those of us in the area, a membership is definitely the cheaper way to see the zoo. And pack a lunch. These collages are from the children's zoo adventures.
This is where children can feel what it's like to be an animal. There are also exhibit animals like otters and the fennec fox. Those ears let the kids hear like the fennec fox.
Hard to see, but there is a wallaby behind the kids in the lower left picture above. Chase is pointing to a lemur in the lower center shot. Sierra is pretending to be a lemur on the climbing tree.
Here they are popping out of prairie dog holes, climbing a spider web and petting a goat. Yes, I know I repeated the web picture. It's been a long day...
We also visited the butterfly house and garden, then the kids took a ride on the bug carousel. Sierra is riding a firefly and Chase is behind her on a praying mantis. They also had a camel ride.
