zoo day

My youngest sister and her DH are guardian members at the SF Zoo which is cool because we get to go on some behind the scenes tours.

Today we saw the Asian Rhino:

    Neat! I have a picture of me petting a lion cub. Their fur is really coarse, not at all silky like a housecat.

    If you go to the San Diego Wild Animal Park and pay like $175 per person, you can go down into the area that’s supposed to be like a savannah. When you’re there you can feed lots of animals and stuff. I really wanted to do that, but alas, it wasn’t in the budget. Maybe next time.

    Getting to feed the animals is cool. We were supposed to get to feed the Rhino — but he wouldn’t co-operate. But I have feed giraffes and hippos before.

    and no one wants to let us pet a tiger….but the rhino did seem to like getting his face scratched by his keeper.

    It looks lke they cut off his horn. Poor thing. Sounds like everyone had a good time.

    Nope, Rhinos rub their horns on whatever is available And at the zoo –it is concrete — so they wear their horns down. Trees aren’t as hard.

    See! That’s why is so great to go to the zoo as you get to learn fun animal facts like Rhino’s rub their horns on what ever is available…
