Trip to Potter Park Zoo

Thursday, we went to Lansing to do some shopping. We also took in the sights at Potter Park Zoo. It was small and only took about 2-3 hours to tour, but it fit perfectly for our time schedule. I don't understand why, but the kids always like to get in with the goats.

This is an eagle owl -- the largest type of owl in the world. He was perched in his cage sleeping. During his sleep, he would open his mouth really wide several times. We wondered if he was dreaming about eating a mouse.

Here's momma kangaroo Esther and her little joey Josiah.

OK, who was playing with the paint? The mandrills are quite colorful and were fun to watch.

The coral reef exhibit was beautiful. It is so fascinating to see God's creation displayed in vivid colors.

The zoo sounds like a lot of fun. Sometimes a small zoo is not so overwhelming. I liked the kangaroo picture, and I liked the picture of Chris right below it. OK, I'm in dutch now.
