|Aayal enjoying the touch table. Fly Aayla Fly!|
|Sierra liked all the antlers but wasn't a fan of the |
tarantulas they had in containers!
|We have had 2 road runners run in front of us while driving but I have never been lucky enough to snap a photo of one |
and Sierra had always missed seeing them so she was
very excited today to see a Road Runner at the zoo
|Daddy Road Runner got in trouble for leading us back to the nest...|
|Sierra is wishing this lizard would just crawl up into daddy's hand :)|
|Trying to find some of the animals hiding...|
|Sierra was uninterested in the bear|
|Owl with one eye|
|They have a progrsm here to help these endangered wolves|
|Sierra quite likes the snakes from a distance|
|Awww Mommy and baby Prairie Dogs|
|Having a good look at Carlsbad in the distance|
|This cactus was beautiful to look at!!!|
But bending down to smell it..pheww stinky!!!
|There were many different cacti from around the world in the greenhouse|
|A lily flower from their pond area|
|Sierra looking for tadpoles|
|I Love dragonflies :)|
We bought an annual membership here. This zoo accredited by the Association of Zoo's and Aquariums and is part of the reciprocal program. This means for our entrance fee of $10 plus only $30 more ($40 for the annual membership and then you have free entry for a year) we are able to visit over 150 zoo's and aquariums in the USA (and 2 in Canada), for either 1/2 price or for FREE depending on the zoo.
( Click here for a list of 2011 participating zoo's and aquariums) Acouple of the zoo's and aquariums we want to go to on this trip are part of the program so it won't take long to get our membership fees back in savings!
Stay tunned...Carlsbad Caverns coming right up :)
