Lions, and tigers, and bears?

Well at least that was the hope. Dantzel and I headed to the National Zoo RIGHT after work in attempts to take in some zoological beauty. Since the zoo didn’t close until 6pm, we thought arriving by 4pm would allot enough time for some wild animals. However, most of the four legged creatures were already taken off exhibit for the evening.

We enjoyed the walk and were quite entertained by the elephants, pandas (which we eventually found in their indoor enclosure), and meerkats.

2 hours is definitely not enough time to take in a zoo! Guess now you'll plan for another time to go and see what you missed.

Have you been to the National Zoo? It's pretty small and two hours would suffice if the animals were actually on exhibit. Oh well! They have an impressive collection of tamarins and elephant shrews.

Love the pictures! Did you get a little trunky?

I've never been to the National Zoo. There was always so much else to see in a short period of time, that the zoo never made my list. Glad you had a good time.

Don't you love how an animal can grab your interest by trying over and over to do something? I love all the pictures of the elephant and wish I could have been there to see it for myself. oh well, i guess I'll just have to go see the elephants at the SD zoo
