We went to Columbus zoo for their FREE military day over the July 4th holiday weekend.
We arrived at 9 AM opening and went straight for the aquarium and Australia part in the back, took an ice cream break, then worked our way around the front part – North America, Africa, and Asia. We finished by about 2 PM.
We loved the manatee rehabilitation center!
Three kookaburras were in the aviary.
We were able to walk through the kangaroo habitat. We were *this close* to the roos!
We were tickled to see the gibbon baby!
Their fur ranges from white to black and everything in between.
This gorgeous Komodo dragon posed for me!
We were very, very hot by this point. As were the lionesses, apparently.
We really, really love bats.
Red pandas are in fact Pokémon.
We had a great time at the zoo!
