What'cha say? Well I can finally say I've taken my kids to a zoo. It only took 9 years! We had a blast when we went to the Boise Zoo a couple of weekends ago. It is a smaller zoo, but it really had a lot of interesting animals I've never seen or even heard of. It was inexpensive, too! Of course a zoo is any homeschooler's dream field trip. A picture is worth a thousand words. Josiah is trying on a pair of fox ears in this pic.
First time I've ever seen a red panda. I want one! They are so adorable. I'm sure they aren't as friendly as they look.
Unfortunately the groundhog exhibit was closed, but the kids still had a great time playing in the bubbles.
This was by far the weirdest animal I think I've ever seen. It is called a sloth bear. They are from Asia. Moments after this picture was taken, it attacked Hailey through the glass.
This strange animal looks kind of like a hare and is from South America. They are huge! Way bigger than a rabbit.
We also went to the Birds Of Prey Center while we were there, which was amazing. I would highly recommend it. Will post on that next.
