2. This sassy goose: Our family has a membership to our zoo and my mom went not long before we did and said she saw (what a messy sentence this is) a new goose that was white and beautiful and she wanted pictures. I knew as soon as I saw her. And she was so snooty. Doesn't she look like the goose version of Anna Wintour?
3. These...birds: I'm guilty of not really reading signs. I like to look not read when I go to the zoo. Occasionally I'll want to know where something's from (the penguins from our zoo are from South Africa?), but other than that I stay blissfully unaware of names and "fun facts". But I watched these two fighting over worms for a few minutes. I didn't get a good picture, but they are beautiful. And in the Australia section of the zoo - which we seldom visit do to the red sand that tends to stain shoes - there was a lot I'd been missing.
4. Wah! Baby wildebeest! The way our zoo's Africa section is set up, the wildebeest, which I love, are very hard to get a good view of. Thank god for my zoom, because there was a baby. This is him attempting to lay back down. You should have seen the trial and error of standing up. So adorable. And gigantic.
I have a feeling we're going to wear out our zoo pass in the last month it's open. What's your favorite zoo? I've been to my fair share. We always seem to vacation in cities with amazing zoos. My favorite that I've seen so far is the Pittsburgh one. I'd love to go back.
PS: Be sure to check the shop! I updated like crazy!
