Not Back to School at the Zoo

Standard

We had friends visiting from Canada so Marissa took a day off from her classes and we spent the day at Utah’s Hogle Zoo.

We love these whimsical giraffe.                    Listening to a guide talk about ferrets.

This giant elephant made lots of noise and his trunk was a favorite perch. But, the live ones are fun to look at, too.

How does he sit there for so long with his mouth wide open?    I bet he wishes he could snack on this bright fellow!

This big guy didn’t look too happy.                  “Now, where to next?” Marcus was the map guide.
