    Kansas City Zoo

    My wife and I went to the Kansas City Zoo today. We had a great time and I forgot how exhausting a trip like that is. I can't imagine having kids and doing that, too! Thought I would share some pictures that I took of some of my more favorite animals that we saw. Some of the pictures aren't too good because of the glass and little kids pushing me around.

    A red panda:




    Koala:




    Golden Pheasant (I was very fascinated by this bird. This might have been my favorite animal that I saw today):


    A cute little baby baboon (2 months old):



    AWWWWE! lol.

    Some crazy lemurs:


    A meerkat:


    African squirrel (?):


    We had a great day. I'm not a huge fan of zoos because I don't like seeing the animals in cages and such but I do find the educative experience very worthwhile (John Dewey would be proud!).

    Great pics. I have two comments. One is that I think that the baby baboon looks just like Mark Martin .
    Two, why didn't you get pics of the camel's feet?

    Well the nice thing about MOST, not all zoos, is that the animals are well taken care of and are often animals that were abused in such places as the circus and other things. The other animals often come from captivity or are orphaned to be left to fend for themselves anyway. Zoos generally avoid "poaching" for captivity.

    My personal favorite would have to be the African Squirrel.

    Of course, I know this zoo takes care of the animals and does an excellent job of educating the public about the endangered list. In fact, most all of the information plagues contained what CITES classification the animal falls under.

    Yes! They look exactly like the squirrels outside in my neighborhood, only with cooler colors!

    Yes they are. I just wish it wasn't so dang packed and busy in that area. Or I just wish that it would have not been so shy and faced away from the wall!

    Red pandas eat about 200,000 leaves a day! Amazing.
