it's a zoo out there!

the weather has been great for an ohio summer

albeit unusual

temps in the 70's during the day & 50's at night

not great for pools & beaches but perfect for visiting the zoo

the flamingos are my favorite

i didn't know this until one of the zoo volunteers told us

but the grey mounds are nest

she said they have a smoothed out hole for the eggs

this little family of monkey's was not behind glass.....

thankfully, this guy was
(a bit intimidating don't you think?)

when my son worked at this zoo, he said there was a waiting list for this volunteer job

and who wouldn't want to let this little one nap on their lap?

hey's soloman!!!

do you have a favorite at the zoo?

  1. Oh I am a fan of the prairie dogs and meerkats at our zoo. I love how they stand up and look around with their bellies sticking out. The guards on high alert. I often remember thinking my son looked like one as a toddler/pre-schooler when he was looking up and out at things. ha! Lovely photos. happy weekend.
