Fun New Years Day at the World Zoo & Aquarium

Mark & I went to the World Life Zoo & Aquarium on New Years Day.
It was such a beautiful, sunny warm day that we just had to spend it outdoors.
My all time favorite is the monkey and this little guy was absolutely adorable!

It was a leisurely walk around the zoo park, and we were surprised that it wasn't crowded at all.
It's always fun watching the kids, especially this little gal while feeding the hungry giraffes.

I love the aquarium there.  It's nothing like Sea World or being at the ocean, but nice all the same.  Big variety and lots to see.  I would love to hold this teeny tiny blue Tree Frog, but they are on the dangerous side. 

You can't help but smile while looking at this little frog! 

My pics didn't come out the best as I was using my phone camera.  I wish this one did because he is gorgeous!  A beautiful black and white Ray.

I took a lot of pictures that day, but these are just some of my favorites.  I'll be posting the rest to my Facebook page soon.

Peace and Happiness,

Nice Pics, Rocky.
We took the boys to the zoo in Ft. Wayne Indiana last summer. I was really surprised that boys 13 and 15 had such a good time and enjoyed it so much. I love the zoo, but it saddens me to see the animals in cages, but it makes me happy that they are safe and well taken care of and not being poached in the wild.

Thank you Carol :) Believe it or not but I feel the same way. Even though we had a most enjoyable day, I kept commenting to Mark that it was so sad that here we are looking at all these animals behind glass/cages - especially ones that were too small, IMO. Then there are ones that are brought in because of injuries and what not that would not survive the wild.
