First..the San Diego Zoo. We spent about 8 hours here..walking! But it was worth the trip. What a fantastic zoo..and this is coming from a very picky zoo-goer!We saw all creatures from the cute and fuzzy..
They had a great elephant enclosure...but you will be INUNDATED with elephant photos in a bit after the Safari park..so all you get from the zoo is the fake on!
Huge enclosure AND a baby had been born the week before! He was almost as cute as the sleeping Koalas! 230 pound one week old baby!
The gorillas were particularly interesting. This female lounged in the grass just like I do..except I typically do it clothed
my mom and I stationed ourselves along the rail..and casually noticed the VIP section..hmm..what is that? Well for a fee..you can sit closer AND meet the cheetah. SOLD!
So..this is our VIP cheetah experience.
So she starts down the path...wait. That isn't a cheetah! Nope..it is Yeti..her companion dog. Cheetahs are apparently incredibly skiddish and big ninnies. so they must have a friend do it first.. Yeti has grown up with her..so she trusts her. they go everywhere together..so Yeti runs it first.
Then we took photos..it wasn't easy to get this shot..
