Baby Elephant Walk

Our stopping point on the way home this time was for a day at the Pittsburgh Zoo. We picked a great day to go - it was Children's Hospital Baby Day. The kids had great fun with face painting, games, and seeing all the animals.

LB released his inner pirate while MM found a butterfly join her.

One of our first views came courtesy of the zebras....

and many other favorite animals.

And here's Papa Jackson...
It has been years since I've been to the zoo and so much has changed.
The only exhibit space that I still recognized were the bear caves.Kodiak bath time.

The biggest change is the aquarium. It isn't the grand diverse aquarium in Baltimore, but it was fun seeing the fish, sharks, jellyfish, and penguins.

The polar bears put on a great show for us.And one was ready and waiting for his Kodak moment.

The sea otters enjoyed a shrimp snack and then went for a swim.

Ever seen a hanging lobster claw - me neither, but it is a cool looking plant.

Turtle time...

This kangaroo thought he could blend in with the people and escape the enclosure, too bad for him the zoo keeper was paying closer attention.

Hornbill enjoying a grape snack.

It was a great day. Hopefully another trip to Pittsburgh will come again.
