    So I was feeling pretty good today and had some extra energy so I decided it'd be a good day to go visit my favorite animals. Here are some of them. :)

    Black Swans - They were very friendly birds and not shy at all.

    The zoo has five giraffes currently. They are always hungry and like to come over to the crowd.

    This is a relatively little guy, an Asian Elephant.

    Did you know that Asian Elephants are smaller and have smaller ears then their African counterparts?

    Elephants and giraffes are awesome animals. How anyone could hunt them is beyond me.

    Can you spot the little meerkat?

    These guys are so fun, they are some of my favorites. They are very curious about humans. One came over to me and put his hand on the glass so I put a finger out and shook his hand. :D

    I feel the same way. They are treasures of the earth and much smarter than we give them credit for. I'm learning about some conservation efforts and feel like I need to take action.

    A three year old lioness. Lions are some of my very favorites. The zoo had two lionesses and a male lion but they didn't bring out the male lion until I left the park. I was pissed. They are so much larger than the females and have that amazing mane.

    Looking at me and licking her chops. I'm glad that glass was there.

    Were you going to be a zookeeper? Long hair and short shorts?
