Zoo Animals

Every time we visit a zoo I can't help but become a kid again too. I am still amazed that I am able to look at them for real that when I was a little kid I only see them in the books.

Our kids were also amazed, and they were both excited as we went around the zoo. Most of the wild animals you can find at the Point Defiance Zoo are those you can see in Asia as they have the Asian Forest Sanctuary. They have the elephant from Thailand, a Sumatran tiger, the white-cheeked Gibbon, the Anoa, and others. They also have the polar bear and other water and marine mammals.


In the aquarium, you can see different  fishes common here in the northwest as well as sharks. I think [not sure] this is a nurse shark that they have in the aquarium. Just like many other zoos, this is an educational place that everyone can learn about different species both in land and in water.




Aside from animals, there are different plants and flowers all around the zoo/park that came from different countries. It's a good thing that the management of this zoo and aquarium were able to incorporate the flora and fauna in one place. We will surely visit there again next summer.

Same here Bless, been wanting to go to a drive-thru zoo this summer nga wa pud nadayon. nakakita kag tarsier diha? THere is something about the zoo that makes you want to go back time and again maski unsa pa imo edad. Makaamaze jud ang animal kingdom labi na si king gorilla. Sa Davao pud naay crocodile farm nga naa pirting dakua nga buaya. love the zoo! bpc hop!

The last time we visit our Buffalo Zoo was the last month of the school year with all my little K's Kindergarten class :-) I always love to go to the zoo. The kids had all the blast and learn new about animals.

SAme as you mommy. I always am amazed and excited to see what other animals are in the zoo that I have never seen before or even seing the same animal still amazes me. Zoo will always be a fn plae to visit for kids and kids alike. Last time we visited the zoo was this summer and my kids had a great time and I had a great 3-hour walk around the zoo. hahahaha...
