San Diego – The Zoo

Leave a comment Standard

(This post was from Our Homeschool Trip in September 2012.)

Who can go to San Diego and not visit the San Diego Zoo? Not us! This was the next place for us to hit. We didn’t know it when the tickets were purchased but they included the Skyfari and Guided Bus Tour which, as we discovered, are a must if you actually want to see most of it.

Our fist stop was Discovery Outpost.  Guess what we found?  It’s a Fossa!!!!!

Next we rode the Skyfari to the arctic and got more awesome pictures of these cute kids we found.

Then back to the woods for a Camp Critters Show!

This was a highlight for Zoe. Many different animals were brought out including a cheetah which is her favorite animal.  Interestingly enough this white dog is a companion animal for the cheetah.  It seems the cheetah is much more relaxed when he’s around.  Good thing.  Given the look of this relaxed cheetah I would hate to see him without his buddy.

This orangutan will forever be a best memory from this trip.  While Oliver was standing near the glass the orangutan ran straight to him (Oliver staggered back a bit not sure he would stop) and put on the best show around.  Laying down, climbing the bamboo, tricks with a banana leaf.  He let out all the stops.  All for little Oliver.

Greg put together a video of other pictures from this day.  He asked that I choose some favorites and write a little about the day.  I think he may have said three pictures?  Uh, well.  It was really hard for me to narrow it down to what you see.    I hope you enjoy the show.
