Da zoo!

Sorry but I have been so busy lately that I haven't been able to post this up until now... On Tuesday our homeschool group took a field trip to a teaching zoo and a planetarium owned by a nearby college. I don't have any pics from the planetarium but I do have a bunch from the zoo part of the trip :D

Emus are the second largest bird on earth. It lives in Australia. Just like its relative the ostrich, it is a flightless bird.

Alpaca-Alpaca's have 3 different types of spit. First one is a mist which is a warning. Second is a little bit worse and means I am getting aggravated with you, please go. Third is very mucus-y, very nasty and pretty much means, I don't like you, GO AWAY! hehehehe :)

This is a Rec Ruffed Lemur. This thing looks adorable but while we were watching it, one of them starts screaming its head off. Oh my goodness, it was hilarious! They are very loud, I don't even know how to describe it! You can watch and listen to them on youtube if you follow this link-

And of course you have to have gators in a zoo! I can't remember which gator this one was, there was two in the exhibit.

Bald eagles! These two are injured so they cannot be returned to the wild.

Isn't this little guy adorable???? He is a caracal. This isn't my picture because the one that we saw just slept in the corner, ignoring us. He lives in Africa and the Middle East.

I hope I haven't bored you will all my animal facts but I do adore animals so sometimes I just blab on forever on what I know about them.... :) I do hope you liked the video of the Red Ruffed lemurs ;)
