Dinosaurs At The Zoo
Last week my sons kindergarten class took a field trip to our local zoo to see the dinosaur exhibit. They have been learning about dinosaurs all week and this trip was the icing on the cake. With this being a trip focused on dinosaurs, we didn't get to see many of the animals the zoo had to offer but we did see a few.
When you walk in the first thing you see are these beautiful Macaws. I love their vibrate color. In the distance we could hear these loud calls. I asked my group what they thought it was and they both said monkeys. We rounded the corner to see the little noise makers and they were Gibbons, a type of ape.
We went into the Unseen New World before heading to the DinoTrek. We saw all shorts of creepy crawlers and sea creatures. My favorite were the sea horses. My son did not like the tarantulas, you should see his face when he talks about how hairy they are. We also witnessed an anaconda shedding its skin. Amazing.
The dinosaurs were absolutely amazing. They moved and made noises. There even was a Dilophosaurus that sprayed the kids with water. They loved that! I knew that most dinosaurs were large and in charge but to see how big they actually were while standing next to them was surprising and a little terrifying.
I will definitely be taking my kids back to see more of our zoo. I hear they have kangaroos! The highlight of my day was just being in my son. Me and him! See ya soon!
