Zoo trip continued

Here's what the armadillo looks like when he curls up - did he get scared seeing adults instead of kids?

Sat morning when we got up, it was raining, not too hard, but enough that we were glad we had umbrellas.

We learned some about the pandas on Friday night - got to compare a panda skull to a brown bear skull, saw a video of the zoo keepers caring for the pandas, etc. Then Sat morning, we went to see the pandas. They are rather cute. We saw them eating some of their morning bamboo.

At the end of our trip, our nametags entitled us to a free ride on the carousel or train (only the train wasn't running yet). M, A and I all took a carousel ride. D decided he would rather watch. I thought it was rather appropriate that A, a tiger cub scout, chose to ride on the tiger.

I took a ride on an otter - they are one of my favorite animals to watch in the zoo. We tried to see them several times, but they were inside until our last visit past - when they were sleeping inside a log. Oh well. All in all, it was a good trip and we all enjoyed ourselves.
