I have always loved animals as far back as I can remember. The first job I ever wanted was marine biologist, photo-journalist, then vet, then to own my very own zoo. so cute huh. not sure how I ended up working in social services except I suppose I applied my ability to empathize to the human race as well. I haven’t gone to a zoo for over 4 years so I told the hubs it was time for a little date day the other weekend. I was happily surprised at how much I still enjoy visiting and learning about animals. Especially Gypsy, this sweet lil african elephant. Her tail was bitten off by a bull years ago so she has a little nub. And thusly, she reminds me of my kitty of the same name, Gypsy, who has a crooked and short tail! small world hee hee. Here’s a look at our Dallas zoo. (all photos taken by me:)
Gypsy, the African Elephant (so cute right?!) Loved this guy! Never been so close to a giraffe like this, amazing! I chickened out on feeding them but how sweet is this girl?
this gorilla was just chillin doing some yoga poses. feels good!
seriously scary crocs! another fave moment: this chimp hooting as us right before throwing a decent sized rock (look in his right hand) at the wall! they have amazing gestures + facial expressions! Flamingos have always been a fave of mine albino crocs apparently don’t live long in the wild due to their inability to camoflauge these snakes are gorgeous (behind glass that is) So that’s that my friends. How do you like the zoo?
