the zoo

Everyone who knows me knows I love the zoo and animals.  The past two spring breaks, Troy and I have visited the Jacksonville Zoo.  I wanted to share a few zoo pictures with you all!

We love the animal encounter opportunities at the Jacksonville Zoo.  The birds loved Troy!  I was able to feed a giraffe.  I was beyond excited!  I love giraffes.

I don’t think this squirrel was technically an exhibit, but he was just too cute eating the melon he had stolen from another animal.

And last but not least, the Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz, half giraffe, half zebra.  Actually he is not a Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz, but an Okapi, which is a relative of the giraffe. But Zizzer Zazzer Zuzz suits him, don’t you think?

I’m already eager to go back!   I want to hold a baby Bengal Tiger.  One can dream right?
