Field Trip: Day at the Zoo!

We were so blessed to receive annual zoo passes from my hubby's parents for Christmas so we decided to get out and go have a fun learning day at the zoo!  And it did not disappoint!  All of the animals were out and active and the boys learned so much just from getting the hands-on experience of seeing everything!  Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for the passes :)
 
Clouded leopard.  Absolutely beautiful!
  

This is the first time we have seen the leopard this close to the fence!  My youngest was actually less than 3 feet from the leopard and the leopard opened his mouth and tried to paw at my son!  My son thought it was awesome and we couldn't believe how big his teeth were!

 
They had some pretty cute zoo keepers there at the zoo today ;)



Sloth bear - This was so cool because we were on a stone bridge looking for this bear and one of the zookeepers called for him, and he was actually underneath of us!  He came right out from under the stone bridge!
 

There goes the bear to eat in his cave!

Tiger
 

This tiger was definitely looking for a mate and was roaring at the top of his lungs!  He actually jumped up to this pedestal in one leap from sitting down, and it's a good 10 to 12 feet off the ground!

There were two baby elephants born within this past year!  So cute!


 

White Rhino

Okapi

Zebra

 
It's such an experience going to the zoo because it is different every time you go!  What is your favorite animal or memory at the zoo?
