Here in Wichita we have one of the top 25 Zoo's in the country. Not sure exactly where it ranks but it is a wonderful zoo. If you are ever in Kansas you should check it out. Last weekend and this weekend we were able to get into the zoo at a huge discount so we were able to actually go and have a nice walk around. Normally it is too expensive for us because well, we're poor, so I was really happy to get to go. I'm a bit like a kid in a candy shop and I love to take pictures of the animals. I took about 100 the first day and a few more the next week of a few animals that were in better positions or more active. Because I took so many I thought I'd share some of my favorites.
I happen to be a big fan of the cats, so I have a ton of pictures of them. But I'll start with my Lion King pictures as I like to call them!
Now for some others :)
I don't remember what this was called, but I thought it was really pretty.
This looks like a giant red fox but is actually a maned wolf.
This guy was just sitting beside the path waiting to have his picture taken!
Giraffe of course.
More birds from Australia
I thought it was super cute that the hippo was sleeping with his face against the glass!
This is an Okapi, it is the only known relative of a giraffe.
