Our Animal Adventures at the Capron Park Zoo

We went to a local zoo yesterday because my two younger boys were taking part in a class on learning all about animal classification.  Of course we later spent the afternoon wandering around the zoo watching all the animals.  It was such a fun day and I had a great time playing with my camera and taking pictures.

See the otter in the treetop?

  2. I LOVE ZOOS!!! Our closest one is just north of Boston. I try to get down there at least twice in the summer. It was there I actually heard a lion roar. My friend and I had to stop and really figure out what it was because we were a good distance away from the Lions Den. I was amazed at the power! I still think Washington Zoo in DC is my fav! #ExplororKids

    1. The Washington zoo is on our list; once my middle son hear they had pandas I was told we "HAD to go there!." We do try to visit different zoos all the time and my boys once heard the lion at Southwick's zoo; they were in a class with the zookeeper at the time and she told them the roar can be heard for miles around.

  3. You managed to get some great closeups of the animals, I find it often so hard in zoos.

    1. I bet they'd love it! We're currently looking for a new zoo to check out; I feel like we've been to the ones around us so often that they've lost their appeal.

    1. They were so adorable! There were a lot of them and they had a huge cage with a built in mountain that they were running all around.
