Welcome to the Kansas City Zoo.
When you enter the zoo, you are greeted by river otters.
Polar Bear Passage is still one the of the most popular exhibits at the park
Unfortunately this was as close as the polar bear would get today.
The entrance to the Australia section of the zoo
Straw Necked Ibis
Sheep in the petting zoo
Blue Poison Dart Frogs
Probably my favorite exhibit here - the Helzberg Penguin Plaza.
That has to be one of the coolest jobs there is.
I always spend way too much time in this exhibit.
The elephants were actually out in their extended viewing area today.
It was nice to see them out and not have to make the trek down to their paddock.
First time I have ever seen a hippo being fed. It was quite entertaining.
The Skyfari ride is always fun.
Lions. They are all male. The reason they do not have manes is because they were fixed before they grew in.
Heading over into the West Africa section
Red River Hogs
Lowland Gorillas. The toddler isn't very old.
Cheetah. This is seriously the closest I've ever been to one
Gold Lion Tamarin
White-faced Saki Monkeys
California Sea Lion
I love going to the zoo. It is awesome that we have two world class zoos in the state of Missouri to choose from. If you are in KC, I definitely recommend a stop. Just be sure to wear your walking shoes because the zoo is rather spread out.
