Wildlife, Part One

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Last weekend, Durel and Jack and I went to the San Antonio Zoo.  To be honest, Durel and I have mixed emotions about zoos.  It makes us sad to see all of those gorgeous wild animals locked up in captivity.  In fact, we've visited a few zoos that we will not go back to because the habitats provided to the animals are just unacceptable to us.  (Not pointing any fingers, but I'm looking at you, CityofHouston.) 

No, we're not all Jack Hanna up in here, we just love AND RESPECT animals, and want Jack to do the same.  So, a zoo has to be good.  Guess what?  The San Antonio Zoo is good.

[Stepping off soapbox]

Oh, what did we see, you ask?  We saw a crazy cool grizzly bear with claws like WOAH.


We saw a Komodo dragon and then had a photo opp on a bronze one.  Look at my handsome guys!


We saw, as Jack says, ELLIES!  

Uh, can I stop posing now and look at the ELLIES?
For what it's worth, I was reminded during this trip that I am actually quite fond of ellies, too.  So, I played with the camera a bit.


You guys, it was so much fun.  FUN, I tell you.  More pictures to come because, you know why?  The SA Zoo has a petting zoo section. 

Hold onto your hats.  Or goats, as it were.

  3. I agree whole heartedly about zoos. Glad to hear SA zoo is a good one. I actually havent been to a zoo since leaving San Diego, I think... I miss walking with the animals, talking with the animals. ( Thank you Rex Harrison.) Does J make an ellie noise now?

  4. These two posts definitely make me want to take Ike to a zoo. A good zoo, of course. Maybe we need to come to San Antonio?
