|"This is my favorite goat!"|
The kids have always been fond of the animal statues around the zoo, and since it wasn't terribly crowded, they got to spend plenty of time on them this trip.
It also happened to be International Polar Bear Day, so there were some special things going on in the bear area. We got to pet and compare a polar bear hide and an arctic fox hide. The kids also liked getting a close look at a polar bear claw. The zoo workers also did "bear enrichment" with the grizzly, so we got to see her eat fish and meatballs while showing off her paws and sides. Gyunay especially liked when she stuck out her tongue.
