Off To The Zoo

Dane and I went to my parent’s last Tuesday and from there we went to the Erie Zoo.  We  have never been there before and didn’t know what to expect.  I was really impressed.  It is a small zoo but it is very nice.  I enjoyed the variety of animals.   They had these Sand Cats……

I haven’t seen sand cats at any other zoo.  My pictures of them are a bit blurry because they do not stay still for more than a second!

They have Meerkats….

Then they had this cute baby monkey with these super long arms!…..

They have orangutans like most zoos but I was impressed with the one.  She was chewing gum and she can even blow bubbles!  How neat is that!  I took a video but can’t upload it :-(

They have a nice carousel …….  Dane and his grandma rode and I took pictures.

There is a small train that takes you to an area you can’t get to by walking where they had deer, big horn sheep…..train

We had a very nice visit at the Erie zoo.  I think we will go again sometime in the future.
