St. Louis boasts it has the number one zoo in the country. Therefore, on my recent visit to St. Louis,. I had to see for myself and I have to admit, it was pretty cool.
The day my husband and I went, the day was overcast and cool which was great for the animals. We went in late afternoon which was feeding time for many of them and that was a treat for us to watch them eat.
In the wild, most animals forage for their food but luckily, in the zoo, food is brought to the animals.
However, this doesn’t mean one cannot forage for one’s self.
We saw a couple of animal babies at the zoo.
And we saw some pretty goofy behaviors.
Some of the animals were just hanging out.
Others were restless.
Others were playing.
Some stood at attention.
And some just decided it was nap time.
Which is exactly what we were thinking too by the time we finished exploring. It was closing time and the animals were ready for their performances to be done for the day.
So, til the next time…
