Lions, and Tigers, and Bears...oh my!

Ok, perhaps that title is a bit of false advertising...but I will get to that in a minute.

On the last day of Steve's vacation we decided to head to the zoo. It was 70 degrees, windy and raining and heck, what says zoo better than that?? Actually we were blessed with only a bit of drizzle while we were there. The zoo is called the Chahinkapa Zoo and it is about an hour from here. All of you city slickers can laugh all you want but it really is a very nice zoo, especially for a town so small. We were there a couple of hours and they were some of the nicest, most relaxed we have spent together in a long time.

Now on to the deception...you see, there were no lions and while there were tigers they refused to pose nicely for the camera. What follows is just an odd assortment of local and not-so-local animals you would find if you stumbled across Chahinkapa Zoo.






can you find the duck? he is hiding in a nest inside the eagle's exhibit
