Thank you Dana for the first of a 3 week CV theme - Animal, Vegetable, Mineral.
Sunday morning we spent a couple of hours at the Oregon Zoo. We have an annual family membership which is great to pop in anytime we feel like and visit specific areas and animals, rather than trying to see everything at once. My kiddos love to see the penguins, the wild pigs and the bats!
The first animal you come across is this fabulous moutain goat. Look at that fur coat - how thick and soft it looks.
There were also two very majestic lions lazing around - rarely do you see them do much more!
I have mixed feelings about zoos - they provide an opportunity for us to view and study wonderful animals we ordinarily would never come across, and prevent many from becoming extinct. However, its heartbreaking to see the some of the larger animals going slowly out of their minds with boredom in environments so alien to their natural habitat - the polar bears, elephants and brown bears always seem the most affected.
