A few weeks ago, Mike and I took time off to go to the zoo. Going on a Monday in early spring definitely has some major benefits. It was not very crowded at all, and while some of the exhibits were closed, we had the run of most of them to ourselves.
1. I got sunburned in mid-March, because my skin is ridiculous. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
2. Admission was pretty cheap for a zoo. I can see many weekend trips in our future due to this wonderful discovery.
3. I forgot how much I love seals. ❤
4. These animals seriously don’t give a sh*t that you’re there. Very willing to approach/stare you down. I’ve never seen a bobcat act more like a house cat until this trip.
I’m going to post pictures of the floral aspect of the zoo later, as there was a crazy aviary that housed a billion different tropical plants. I could have spent the day in that building, so I think a separate blog post will do.
The NC Zoo is a great, family oriented trip, especially if you’re in the Carolinas. If you can swing a week day, I’d definitely recommend it. I can’t wait to try it out during the summer.
Do you live near a zoo? What’s your favorite exhibit?
Thanks to Mike Gillman for all the amazing pictures.
