So guess what. We almost didn't go to the San Diego Zoo! After all that talk, Frenchie actually changed his mind on Friday, partially to try and appease me. I knew how badly he wanted to go though, so on a sunny Friday afternoon, we journeyed to the zoo. We learned a great many things and not only about animals. Actually, barely anything we learned was about animals. Please enjoy the lessons below. I know we did.
|A. Parents will bring their 3-month old child to the zoo to look at animals. I repeat, they will pay $40 each to get into the zoo and push a 50 lb stroller uphill for four hours so that their infant can enjoy "seeing" the animals|
|E. The spray zone for a lion is 7 - 10 feet. Spray meaning urine or liquid feces because it's pissed off that you're interrupting its 10th nap of the day (I made the liquid feces part up but it could be true)|
|H. We got a really cool picture of a gorilla. The lady on the other side, unfortunately, only got a smear from its butt right before it urinated onto the glass|
More San Diego pictures to come...
