Houston Zoo Fun!
Having a little one you always try to find ways to entertain them! This week we agreed on the Houston Zoo! An amazing experience full of animals and frozen lemonade. Going on a weekday was defiantly a great choice, it was not packed and there happened to be a nice breeze! We like to pack light when we travel to different places so choosing a bag was easy thanks to the How to Choose Dry and Water Proof Bags website.
First, we started at the little kid’s aquarium called Kipp Aquarium at the beginning of the entrance. We took a voyage under the sea. The aquarium was filled with coral reefs from the Pacific, the Amazon Basin, and the Rift Valley lakes of Africa. We saw Dory, Nemo, jellyfish, seahorses, and many other sea animals. Next, we saw the sea lion show! The water was so clear we could see every little turn, tricks, and spin perfectly. It was so peaceful and nice, this was defiantly a great entrance into the zoo.
We enjoyed viewing all the animals and stopped by the elephant exhibit for an exciting show. We were to view the elephant getting a bath at the elephant barn. The elephants loved the water and it was a beauty to see them in their natural habitat. On May 2017, the zoo completed doubling the size of the elephant pen. Along with doubling the exhibit, the zoo added a 16,00-gallon tank and a 7,000 squeeze-foot barn that was custom made for the elephants! They added this expansion to help endangered elephants as an effort to save them.
The zoo was filled with many different types of monkeys, zebras, giraffes, lions, tigers, wolves, and anything else you can think of. I was shocked at the number of things they had available for the price. The price is 19.95 for anyone over the age of 2. With this amazing deal, how can you not want to go? Let me know of any exciting zoo adventures you had!
