Zoo Fun in January

In the middle of January, the kids and I went on a field trip to the zoo.  It is great to be able to pick out a nice, warm day in winter to go to the zoo for some learning, exercise, and fun!
One of the orangutans and Catherine checked each other out.

Sometimes when you go through the Australia section, the cute little wallabies are everywhere!

 A stop to check our wing spans.

We got to the Giant Anteater exhibit in time to see a new anteater being introduced to the the resident anteater.  The male kept trying to get the female's attention and she was having none of it.  At times, it looked like they were fighting!

Giant Anteaters are curious creatures.

Kids lined up to look at the rhinoceros.

The Caracal, an African wildcat that can jump quite high.

Anthony loves this little lion.

Everyone is looking at the camera!

The Red Pandas, animals we rarely see when we are at the zoo.

The tiger found water to drink.

It was fun to watch the tiger walking on the ice.  I thought for sure he would break through!

Amur Leopard.

Lots of birds!

Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam...

...where the deer and the antelope play!

Frozen river.

Can you say snuggling tortoises?
