We were surprised that they let the kids touch them!! No, really... they had plastic pink flamingo's showing us the way!
Each time we go to the zoo we all pick our favorite from the day. Syrah picked the flamingo's; they are pretty amazing creatures. Their legs don't really look real!
Dad's favorite was the Hippo's ~ not only were they out swimming a ton this visit, but they also were blowing water up; the first time it made all the people laugh and then one of the Hippo's did it again, but the second time it almost sounded like he was laughing with everyone - then he sprayed the water way up and the wind caught it just right which means we got some spray - yep, we were sprayed by Hippo's today!
I have to say that I really liked the Hippo's and the Red Panda, but I really believe the Otter has to be the one that I can sit and watch for hours!! I just love their energy, the way they swim in the water and their playful nature.
