The zoo is always a fun place to visit. You never know what you'll see the animals doing on a certain day, at a certain time. They're very unpredictable. When we arrived at the lion exhibit this lioness was roaring at something. Normally, all of the lions are just laying around taking a nap. We don't usually see much movement out of them.
Several years ago the Woodland Park Zoo, in Seattle, remodeled their elephant exhibit. Since the elephants had come from Thailand my mom was asked to help translate the signs, around the exhibit at the zoo.
When we first visited the Denver Zoo after the new elephant exhibit opened there was Thai everywhere. When I told my parents, they made it a request to visit the zoo while they were in town and it didn't disappoint!
The tigers were a little feisty during this visit. Unfortunately, my camera settings were a little off since we were outside just minutes before, and I forgot to change my settings. This tiger jumped on the glass. He was trying to break free, but he failed.
Anna is a mama's girl. She doesn't like to share me with Elizabeth. Elizabeth is our moody little one. She was upset because she didn't want to be in the photo above. Then she was upset because she did want to be in the photo above.
This is the first time I have ever seen the rhinos up on four legs at the zoo. Maybe it's because he has room to roam now? Some of the rhinos now share a home with the elephants.
This guy swinging on the rope also has a new home. He now swings from rope to rope while we walk underneath him.
My mom shot some video of him almost dropping his popsicle on us.
