Going to the Zoo...

Christmas Vacation is ticking away,
so we decided to go to the zoo today! We saw all the animals out on exhibit.
Our first stop was the seals and sea lions.

Then we headed next door to Australia.
Three new Tasmanian wombats just arrived
at the beginning of the month,
but they were not in their enclosure!
We decided to try again later.

So back to the polar bears.

They must be enjoying the cooler December temperatures,
except all of our photos seem to have them resting on the rocks.

We love giraffes!

This one walked right up to us,
and asked if we had any food for it.

The orangutans were pretty special, too.
This is the patriarch.

And there was a mixed breed orangutan
with beautiful red fur!

Baby Reese came out to play
and nibble on the treats in the newspaper.

There was another female who cared for Reese.

Isn't she cute!

The Mexican Wolves, the lobos,
paced around.
Do you see both wolves?

Wouldn't you hate to be Little Red Riding Hood
meeting a wolf in the forest?

The lion woke up from his nap,
stretched and roared,
and returned to his nap.

Can we see if the wombat is out?
There he is!!!!

He trotted around....

and played with his stuffed companion!

We saw all the animals.
