Zoo picture dump

Took my grandson to the Columbus zoo today--First time we have taken him that far, he did well--but he was exhausted by the time we left, asleep before we were out of the parking lot.  Click on pictures to make them huge

They have a bucket of combs and brushes at the petting area.

He wanted to get in and swim with the fish...

It is really hard to get a picture of a toddler at the zoo that shows faces and that he's at the zoo.  Sometimes you just settle for faces.

Big snake

Giant aquarium.  I think it is fantastic, he wasn't impressed.

Fox Bats

He did like the tank with manatees and rays.

They had a fantastic playset, although I am not sure why it belongs at the zoo.  Kind of like the McDonalds ones, except much bigger and better.

The only downside was if your kid didn't want to come out, it was hard to get to him...

These were the "stairs" to the upper levels--a series of  steps like this, except with the hole in a different corner for each step--maximum fall level was only about 2 feet onto a stretched cloth floor.

Level 2 of 3 levels.

I am probably going to use this picture for a Gimp tutorial.


  1. Adorable!!!!

    (love that gorilla and the way he THROOOOWS himself at the glass, nearly gave me a heart attack the first time I experienced it!)

  2. Looks like a great time was had by all!

  3. Daisy: There was a sign on the glass "The gorilla is allowed to bang on the glass, you aren't"
