    Inner City Zoo's

    Got a season pass to the state's zoo's for my birthday. All of which happen to be right down in 3 of the largest cities in Michigan.. Lansing, Battle Creek, and of course Detroit. So I started with the one in the capitol city. Mostly because it's only 10min. away. So first up for that one reason is Potter Park Zoo in Downtown Lansing, MI.

    Sorry for the crappy pics.. my camera sucks.















    Arctic Fox



    River Otter



    Bald Eagles





    Kind of obvious..





    The Great Owl from 'Secret of Nimh'



    Some strange Hare





    There was a crazy amount of peacocks just chilling around the park..

    This thing was SO mean and CONSTANTLY growling at me.. I don't remember what kind of cat it was, but his name is Kartman.







    Spider Monkeys taking a break from their poop flingin'







    Snow Leapord juve..



    Red Pandas..





    Bear Cat napping



    Smallest species of deer in the world, that's all I remember besides something was wrong with it. It wouldn't stop looking up..



    A couple turtles in their "Michigan's Turtles" exhibit. I actually talked to a couple park managers about donating my Blanding's Turtle (one of MI's rarest turtles) to their exhibit!! I'd get a small donation name plack on the exhibit sign for my contribution to the park. Fun fun..


    Meer Cats





    Ring Tailed Lemurs







    a train whizzing by loud as hell just to remind everyone where they are..
    in the G H E T T O..




    Red Lemur I think..

    Lots of cute animal picksures!
    You know, I don't think I've ever seen a train. I think that would've been the highlight of the day for me if I was there

    NEVER SEEN A TRAIN!?!?!? We have trains and tracks every few miles. It's a pain.. Drive, stop and wait.. drive some more.. stop and wait. They run from Detroit to EVERYWHERE!! Except Sarasota of course.

    Yeah...no idea what's up with that. I know there's train tracks, but there's never trains on them. idk if I just don't go out enough or what. But I've never seen a train.

    I'd see it and go "OMG TRAIN! "

    Wow, what an awesome gift. I hope whoever gave it to you knows how much you'll enjoy it. I'm freaking bonkers for the zoo.
