The Houston Chronicles, Part 2 ... 5/28

Today's agenda was the Houston Zoo!

After a mild altercation with some people in the parking lot about us "stealing" their parking spot when there were plenty other empty ones nearby, we made our way into the zoo. 
Damn, sloths are so cute!
These animal topiaries were everywhere!
Because Longhorns = Texas. 
Komodo Dragon

This was the most fabulous orangutan EVAH!!!  We were hurrying thru the monkey section because it was close to closing time, but when we came around the corner, this guy sat up and proceeded to Vogue for us!  He (she?) kept striking poses for us, each time looking to make sure we were watching!
Looking at you!
These birds were actually everywhere - they just seemed to strut more at the zoo!
We didn't see any male lions, but the females were somewhat active. 
I think every zoo has a really pretty fountain. 
I never did get a good shot of this guy, I had to steal this one from Laura. 
Either we missed a lot, or its a lot smaller than the Detroit Zoo.  OK, it's both.  I just looked at the website.  :P   We didn't see any giraffes, zebras, seal lions, etc.  

We had a lot of fun, it's been a while since I'd been to a zoo.  This was another goodie from our City Pass that got put to good use!



  1. The zoo is fun. Since the kids are grown we never go. Koalas are my favorite. Love those creatures with the red nose and purple butts! Nice pictures, Lisa!

    1. I think we've had more fun going to the zoo since the nieces & nephews are all grown now - you don't have to worry about where they are and can enjoy the animals!


Leave a note - they make me feel loved!
