Welcome to The Alaska Zoo!
It’s a cute little thing, with a fox and wolves, brown and black bears, and a huge scary tiger. An ox, a porcupine, a camel and lots more.
There’s also a moose which totally cracks me up, because a moose in Alaska is like a house cat (or something like it) anywhere else. Moose in Alaska are normal and seen often during the winter on streets, in people’s yards, and even… coming to your front door to ask for a cookie
So, it’s like, oh, hey moose. Fancy seeing you here. Again.
My point is, moose aren’t that exciting at the zoo.
Polar bears however. Now those are cool.
They are massive. Huge. Gigantic creatures.
Just huge! I decided I’m pretty fond of them.
It’s great because Lucas can walk around on his own and explore. It’s never over crowded and it’s all on a trail.
Here’s the cage with an owl in it. Verrry exciting.
Doesn’t it make you want to come and visit?
An adorable kid I found climbing on the fence like some sort of monkey. What does he think he is? An animal? Get down from there! And look, he’s wearing a DISPOSABLE! I can’t believe some parents these days!
(Sorry. Too much excitement at the zoo did this to me. )
Do you have a zoo in your area? What’s it like? Do you go often? We have a family membership and go at least 3 times a month!
