I love going to zoos, as my Chicago post explained. I don't exactly know why. And some part of me really feels uncomfortable with so many wild animals being caged up instead of in their natural habitat. But I also believe, if experienced correctly, zoos are a great way to learn about these animals from other countries.
About a month ago, I took my brother to the Niabi Zoo in Coal Valley. It's not a very big zoo, but I do really love it and I try to go multiple times a summer. Here are some pictures from our first trip to the zoo this summer.

|We got the back seat of the train!|
|The lions were very active when we were there.|
|Look at the size of those paws!|
|Aww little baby =)|
|The tortoise really liked Alex|

It was a wonderful day at the zoo, but we left just in time! A big storm was coming our way. We'll have to go again sometime soon! Let me know if you'd like to join us.
