So I mentioned we stopped at the Memphis zoo taking mom home. I thought I would show a few of the animals. Hopefully, you won't get too bored.I've never seen a white tiger before. He/she posed so perfectly that he/she reminded me of a stuffed animal.They had two pandas on exhibit. I think these little guys are the cutest. They were both munching on bamboo. They must have some really strong teeth and jaws. Now I didn't say they were the neatest eaters. This one looks like he's saying, "Do I have the life or what?" Sorry for the dimness of the picture, they were enclosed behind glass.They had a nice area for the polar bears. I was hoping they would get in the water where you could see them up close. But instead they opted to play. They had a small but nice aquarium. I enjoyed watching this polka-dotted fish as well as the lion fish(I think that's what it was called.).I think this is the lion fish. So interesting to look at.They also had a new bird exhibit this weekend. It was like we were walking around inside a cage full of parakeets. They were everywhere.You could purchase these little feeders and the birds would hope down on the sticks while you were holding the feeder. This little birdie was about 2 inches from hubbies face and could have cared less.They also had two beautiful bald eagles. One can certainly see why they are our national bird.
Hope you enjoyed the zoo. I haven't been to this zoo since the 60's. Needless to say, it's changed a good bit.
