First we checked out Cat’s wingspan in the Bird area. She’s apparently a Turkey Vulture – I knew it!
I love seeing animals that I have never seen before. This guy was posing on the rock for us so I had to oblige him with a photo.
What’s in that hole? Gladys!!! Gladys and her surrogate mom weren’t in the mood to come and hang out with us this day – but I couldn’t resist trying to catch a peek at her!
We also needed food!!!! We were pretty impressed by the cheeseburger combo offered up at one of the Zoo booths – it was $6.99 for the burger and fries at the Safari Grill inside the park.
And then my favorite animal in the whole park – the POLAR BEAR! He was being a little lazy which bummed me out – but I still got to see him blowing bubbles at least. 🙂
This was so cute – the zookeeper was literally walking back to the building with a flamingo – like they were pals! She just kept talking to him (?) saying “come on buddy” – “no this way – we gotta go get something to eat!”. It was pretty awesome.
Cat and I got to pet a snake! I’m not a huge fan of snakes but I’m fine with petting them – as long as there’s a handler there!
Cat LOVES giraffes – so we had to get a pic of her and one of the brood. They nearly matched even!
Here’s nearly the whole family – so cute! They were the beginning of the new Africa exhibit that has partially opened.
And there are my two favorites – Larry & Cat at the end of our big day at the zoo.
Cincinnati Zoo is one of the best attractions in town and don’t forget – you can get discounted tickets at any Kroger service counter! It’s definitely a must-see for any visitors to Cincinnati!
