Fort Worth Friday


Let's visit the Fort Worth Zoo! Our zoo is one of the best zoos in the country. DD and I visited the zoo last fall for the first in many many years. I think I went with one of the kids on a field trip way back in the day, but I was chaperoning kindergartners so my enjoyment of the zoo was minimal at best.

But this time--lots of fun!

 Here's me sitting on a large brass crocodile...

 And DD sitting in the window to the otter tank...

The zoo was founded in 1909 with only a handful of animals and was operated by the City of Fort Worth. It's everyday operations were transferred to the Fort Worth Zoological Association in 1991.The zoo has grown by leaps and bounds over the years and now houses over 7000 creatures, both native and exotic, including the largest herpatarium--the reptile and amphibian house. FMI: Forth Worth Zoo wiki page and The Fort Worth Zoo website.

And now for some pics of the animals--cuz that's really why we go to the zoo, yeah??







Have you been to the zoo lately?? And I've gotta ask--what's your favorite zoo animal?

(Mine's the elephant.)

I haven't been to the zoo since I was a kid--I've been wanting to go back!

I love the bears. And the big cats. And the elephants. And... :)
