First Trip to the Zoo

Auntie Laura is in town so we took a trip to the Austin Zoo on Saturday. The zoo is really more of a rescue/sanctuary. All of the animals there have been rescued from a bad situation. Many were pets first before the owner realized that having a giant Bengal Tiger isn't such a good idea.

He was less than impressed with the fake gorilla in the gift shop.

It was almost 90 degrees on Saturday so we broke out the sun hat.

One of the large female lionesses. Check out that huge paw.
