A forecast of 100-plus degrees won’t make Graham and me heat hostages. Thanks to the recent “Zoopendous” deal ($10 admission vs. $20), we planned a Phoenix Zoo trip for last weekend.
The monkeys, however, were curious and friendly. A couple even came over to the glass to say hello.
|This monkey was eating a bird!|
|The orangutan exhibit, “People of the Forest,” is one of my favorites.|
Among my favorite animals we spotted were the burrowing owl and the desert tortoise.
|The burrowing owl looks bigger than it actually was in this photo. It was too shy to come out of this log.|
|The tortoise was busy munching on its lettuce breakfast.|
We even took a trip to South America.
|This one reminds me of the movie “Black Swan.” It must be the eyes.|
