Kansas City Zoo

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.

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.

Moon jellies.

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.

Slender-snouted crocodile

The Skyfari ride is always fun.

Black Rhinoceros

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

Cheetah.  This is seriously the closest I've ever been to one

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.
