Vanouver Zoo

On Saturday, we headed to the Greater Vancouver Zoo. We had such a great time, and we didn't even get to see most of the zoo! Here are a few highlights!

The giraffes were beautiful! This one posed very nicely for picutres!

Adam enjoyed watching the ostrich.
I think they were having a staring contest.

We took a fun train ride that went around the perimeter of most of the zoo.

After the train ride, there was a bird show. It was such a great show. The birds were amazing! They flew right thru the crowd, and were very cool!
They even let people have a chance to catch a hawk. Scott went first...

...and I even gave it a try. It was a beautiful bird!

The last bird they brought out was the Peregrine Falcon. He was beautiful! The bird had only just started with the trainer, so they weren't sure what would happen - well, he took off and chased the seagulls around the zoo. He did finally come back - it was pretty cool to see the trainer try to bring the bird back.

As we were getting ready to go, Adam and this Yak had a staring contest. Adam had picked up a stick and the Yak started bobbing it's head like it was going to charge. It was kind of funny!

The last animals we saw were the hippos. They were laying out in the mud. We had seen them in the water when we came by them in the train.
The Vancouver Zoo was very cool. We will definatly take another trip up to finish our visit. I'm not sure if it was because of the weather (it was rainy and cold) or not, but all of the animals were out and it was fun to see them. We will definately take another trip up so we can see the rest of the zoo!
