Brookfield zoo is a beautiful place to visit if you’re in the Chicagoland area.
Just don’t go in the late afternoon. A lot of the animals like to take naps then.
“Richard Parker” was awake! Did anyone else see or read Life of Pi?
I love the way The Big Cats pace back & forth. Slowly.
Some the animals seemed to be watching us. These crocs were asleep. Until, one eye popped open!
I wondered what they were thinking.
Maybe we missed them but, we didn’t see any “farm animals”. No pigs. No cows. No horsies. I wonder why that is…
If you go to Brookfield, grab a new toy before you head home! They have Mold-a-rama machines that make little plastic animal toys right before your eyes. We got a bear. His name is Ka-ho.
Have you been to your local zoo lately? What’s your favorite animal to see?
There is a shaded (tree-lined), wood-chipped nature trail at Brookfield…über romantic to walk through with your honey!
