It's going to be 92 degrees in northeast Wisconsin! WOOT!!! I love summer sizzler days!
This past Sunday a friend and I went to the DeYoung Zoo in Michigan. Here is the link to their website:
If you haven't been there, I suggest a road trip for you! They have feeding times, animal talks, and are family friendly.
We were able to feed a hippo that came from Indonesia (flew into Ohare Airport). Talk about a massive mouth and enough power to kill us instantly if we were in his pen. We also got to watch the keepers feed the tigers chickens that a local farmer donated (they are feed live feed everyday). As a result of their healthy and protein rich diets, the animals have beautiful and lush coats and are extremely happy!
To top of our zoo trip, I was also able to pet a wolf cub. It tried to eat my short string. :) Not a pup I would like to have as a pet but cute to pet when he is small.
