The meerkats will never cease to be my favorites. I would totally have hopped right over the fence, scooped one right up, stuck him in my purse and carried him home - if not for the fact that he just might bite the hec out of my hand.

I've decided that flamingos are some of the most photogenic animals out there. Graceful, and experts on posing.

When we walked up to the elephant exhibit, S pointed and shouted, "Look at the tall big one!"
