...At the Zoo


I have not been to the Fort Worth Zoo in so many years that....I can't actually remember ever having GONE (though, I know I have). How great is that place? I had no idea how huge it was, and how many neat exhibits there are, not to mention a ton of great animals, and generally fun 'stuff' to do. With the economy, the news has been reporting there are some record breaking crowds that have gone out to the zoo this break. Today I joined them. Sure enough, the line of spectators made traffic crawl as far away as the highway, and the crowds were pretty jam-packed at every exhibit, and along all the wide walkways. Of course, I took my camera. Some of the many animals I saw today.

After exploring the exhibits we ended up in an old 'Texas Town,' which was so cute, with all the Texas climates represented, and local animals. That was a fun surprise. Then, when we left a few of the zoo keepers were hanging outside the zoo with some of the animals, which was neat to see. I think I'm going to invite them to my next birthday party.

Hmmm... I'm not sure that I've ever been to that zoo.

How does it compare to the Dallas one?

It is bigger, with more animals and extras. The habitats for the animals also seem less like a cage and more like a home. I would definately say it's better, minus the distance, but it is alsorigjr next to the botanical gardens, and some other attractions :)
