They also have a few non natives like their tiger, the cutest tamarins ever, etc.
We even got to see them feed the bear his breakfast!
One of the things that the zoo does very well is accommodate little kids. They have several play areas for the kids to blow off some steam while you admire the llama. This includes as splash pad for some water fun and also several spots with picnic benches where you are welcome to enjoy lunch.
Overall, it is a perfect space for kids. Jeffrey, Ada and I had a blast with my friend Cody and her daughter Zoe. Zoe is three weeks older than Ada, about the same height, and about a million pounds lighter (Ok, 5 pounds, but it is remarkable what a difference five pounds can feel like.)
|This is the bear we watched eat. He is huge.|
|This is Zoe. She never looks super excited. She makes excellent growling noises at bears.|

|This is a Harris Hawk. There are two of them and they are very wild and are here after being found with injuries. That is a dead mouse he's got pinned down. They flopped it in there for them to "catch."|

|Kisses! It looks like Zoe isn't into it but really she started it.|
|Z and a giant bucket in the sand pit. Happiest I've ever seen her.|
