Justin makes a new friend in the Butterfly exhibit!
Justin and I decided to check out the San Antonio Zoo this afternoon, and we’re so glad we did! We were very impressed with the huge variety and sheer numbers of animals in the Zoo’s collection. And while it was a very very large zoo (3rd largest in the country) it was laid out nicely and was very easy to meander through and see everything in a few hours. We would highly recommend anyone visiting the San Antonio area to check out the zoo, and if you can get in during an off time, such as a the middle of the week, there aren’t quite so many strollers to navigate around.
An Okapi, the legs of a zebra, the body of a deer, and the head of a giraffe!
The elusive white rhino...
The zoo had multiple varieties of flamingos, all very active!
A small cuttlefish in the aquarium exhibit.
A very camouflaged chameleon. We called him Peeta from The Hunger Games.
There were hundreds of butterflies in the butterfly enclosure. It was crazy to see so many different varieties all just inches away!
Speaking of inches away...
Snow Cone time! Justin went with "Tiger's Blood".
And I choose pineapple.
A Lory. One thing that we were impressed by was how interactive many of the exhibits were. You could get so close to some of the animals and birds, and even feed some nectar or pellets.
A 4 year old Komodo Dragon.
Up close and personal with this Leaf-tail Gecko.
Another lizard giving Justin the stink-eye.
Quite the interesting colors on this bird!
Another close, interesting-looking bird.
There were hundreds of species of birds at the zoo. This zoo definitely had so much more than your typical lions, tigers, and apes. So many animals that we had never seen before!
