The Zoo

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.
