Project 365, Day 157 (6/6/09) A walk on the Wild Side

We visited the John Ball Zoo today & had a blast! Here are a few photos from our little adventure...

One huge hit with everyone was the petting pool. We were able to touch dozens of sting rays and even a few sharks! Jacks was especially fearless; I was proud of the little guy!

This was also pretty neat - I can't remember for the life of me what this animal was called, but when Liz put her hand up on the glass, so did he! I'd never seen a zoo animal interact like that before, so that was pretty cool to witness. (Though I felt a little sad for him... maybe he's lonely?) Poor little critter.

We watched three chimps chatting it up

and saw this beautiful cat.

The kids also loved the camel ride!

“If you're hanging around with nothing to do and the zoo is closed, come over to the Senate. You'll get the same kind of feeling and you won't have to pay.” ~ Bob Dole
