Me at the San Antonio Zoo in 1985
And at the San Diego Zoo in 2012. Apparently my hair hasn't changed in 27 years...
Let me tell you, the San Diego Zoo did not disappoint! We spent a full day - almost 8 hours - and still didn't see everything the zoo had to offer. It was amazing and worth much more than the price of admission.
I couldn't believe how huge these turtles were. One of them is 150 years old! And they were so friendly, too. The big guy on the right just loved having his neck/chin rubbed.
I hope he's not laughing at my pink pants...
This mama jaguar was fierce. She paced back and forth in front of the window the whole time her little cubs were out playing.
This smarty-pants said 'hello' when I first walked up and 'bye-bye' when I left. And he said 'what' every time he heard my shutter click!
How do you feel about zoos? Do you love them as much as I do?
