Meeting the elephants was as great as I hoped it would be. When we went yesterday morning, there were only two on display, I think a Mama and her baby.
A zookeeper said the baby is two years old.
They were beautiful and magnificent and seemed to be adjusting well.
After we met the elephants, Russ and I walked through all of the new construction areas. They are building the elephants a huge habitat, and also areas for the other African animals. Big cats, it is finally your turn!
Then we went to see almost all of the other animals.
A very fun day.
Thanks for looking at ALL the pictures! I can never pick my favorites. I love (almost) everything at the zoo.
Fun fact - Almost all mammals have vision similar to red-green colorblindness like dogs and cats do, so maybe they see each other like we see these pictures!
