Lunch Date at the Zoo!

LunchDate

What a wonderful place the local Zoo is! Here in Fresno, they have the Fresno Chaffee Zoo, filled with more animals than you would expect and a newly added sea lion exhibit. I had not been to the zoo in years and figured it would be great to visit all those lovely animals on the first of the year. There are so many reasons to visit your local zoo, such as supporting your community, learning about animals, getting exercise in an exciting environment, and of course experiencing the petting zoo! Take a look at some of the beautiful animals I encountered during the visit. I am sure that you will want to go soon after viewing them!!! ROAR!

I got to feed a giraffe! Very exciting and very slobbery! Loved it!!!

This guy had the longest hair I had ever seen, which is probably why his lady friends was grooming him the entire time.
