After our homeschool day today I decided to take Nolie on a little field trip to The Wild. It was our first time there and we were so impressed! It was so clean feeling, which was refreshing for a zoo. The animals were so close and we could feed the non-dangerous species, sometimes out of our hand. Others we could feed through tubes. They have more animals than I took images of including :: Lions, Tigers (one is white), Grizzly and Black Bears, Porcupines, Kangaroo and many more. Next time I will bring a zoom lens to try and capture some of those animals.
Here are the animals I did photograph ::
African Crowned Crane
Reticulated Giraffe (They had names, but my daughter kept calling them Mr. and Mrs. Neck, LOL)
My Little Bear Cub
Watusi (He knew his name and came when he was called)
North American Alligator
Poison Dart Frog
The Wild closes for the winter season at the end of this month. I am so glad we got to check it out before they shut down. We both highly recommend a visit. My daughter even coined it "the best day ever!" (But in all honesty, she has a lot of those, lol.)
