Posts Tagged ‘Minnesota Zoo’

Today is my birthday.  I’m indifferent about my age so I might as well just not even mention the number.

Husby took me on the birthday outing of my choice – a trip to the Minnesota Zoo.  We haven’t visited in quite a number of years so I thought it would be a fun day.  We saw some amazing things, and I even managed to remember to take a few photos.

Beautiful and graceful flamingos. Did you know the sound they make is almost cow-like? That’s what I thought, at least.

 

A slew of very peppy prairie dogs. I love their tiny, little ears.

 

A very large bear. He kept scratching his snout.

I didn’t take a ton of photos because well, you know, being in the moment and all.  However, I did manage to get a good collection of otter photos.  There were several varieties of these playful little creatures and I couldn’t resist taking a shot or two of each.

Here’s one getting ready to slide down a miniature waterfall.

 

Now we see a couple swimming on their backs and having some lunch.

 

It was naptime for these three little otters.

We saw everything from mudpuppies to kangaroos, from tigers to leafy sea dragons, but the otters will always manage to steal my heart.  An otter birthday for me with an otter year to anticipate.

Happy birthday to me!
