This photo reminded Cynde and I of our three sons just as they get busted for rough-housing. Two will try to look innocent while one is pummeled underneath.
I'd like to know who had the bright idea of putting a zoo on a hillside. The trails took us to the bottom of the hill, then back up, then back down, then back up... It's a big, big hill. Anyway, San Diego has a very nice zoo facility, but Conner and Parker claim the Ft. Worth Zoo is better. We had a great time. I avoided posting pictures of the animals since most animals have already been seen. But I did post a select few for reasons that will become obvious as you read below each picture.
So we drove over 1500 miles to see Panda bears, and this is what we saw. I started looking around for hedge trimmers so I could clear the view. Afterall, this was the only zoo exhibit that had a line reminiscent of the Disneyland lines, and we had endured the line to see the famous Panda exhibit. The lady talking through the speaker system,in almost a whisper, explained how delicate the bear is, so they have to wake it carefully. Initial attempts to wake the bear had failed. I'm thinking, "Surely they could nudge this bear off the tree limb, right?" We had to move on since more people were in line behind us to see the panda's back between the leaves.
Want to entertain meerkats? Bring a silver umbrella. Note the guy on the right with the silver umbrella. As he spun it, closed and opened it, and moved it around, the meerkats would react and the humans would laugh. This was my fav exhibit.
Cynde swears she has had hissing cockroaches invade her office at her employer. Their pest control service guy has yet to see any. I myself have been skeptical of her claim. So when she saw this display case of hissing cockroaches, she immediately identified the culprit. I'm still skeptical.
This polar bear was the only bear to put on a proper display of animal activity. The grizzly, black, speckled, and panda bears were either on strike or didn't get the memo that hibernation ended several months ago.
