I’ve always loved the zoo.
When Alyssa was a little girl, we had season passes to the zoo because we visited so much. It had been quite awhile, so we decided to go to the Metro Richmond Zoo. It is located at:
Moseley, Va 23120
One of the things I love about the Metro Richmond Zoo is that it can be found nestled in the woods not far from other civilization.
Of course, the other thing that makes the Metro Richmond Zoo so great is the animals that call it home.
The Lovely Flamingo
Beautiful feathers with funny legs.
Such A Satisfied Little Animal
These little animals were just as cute as you can imagine.
First we watched the monkey play with carrots and feed them to giant gold fish. Then we watched him roll over, play and laugh.
Toe Sucking Monkey
Sometimes the monkey that is behind glass can be seen sucking his toe.
Definitely Got Horns
Gorgeous, thick, loopy horns!
Yeah, no thank you. I don’t like alligators.
This Bird Could Say “Hello”
As soon as we walked up to the bird, he said, “Hello!”
Craziest Looking Bird
I have no idea what all that orange flesh served.
1 Hump Or 2?
We stayed far enough away from the camels to ensure if they started feeling mischievous, they wouldn’t be able to spit on us.
Doe A Deer, A Female Dear
Can You Believe Alyssa Touched Animals?!
I know it is hard to believe, but Alyssa was touching as many animals as she could. I was thrilled!
Naaaaaa Says The Goat
Lemurs – Long Tail And Short Tail
Reach Out That Hand Monkey!
Don’t even tell me that the orangutan is red.
As the rhinoceros were eating, all I could think was that these animals looked so prehistoric!
Turtle! No, I mean tortoise! Huge shells! Oh my, these were such big animals!
The wild boar were so ugly that they were beautiful.
Giraffe, Giraffe, Giraffe!
Ahhh, yes. The giraffe were HUGE and cute.
Yes, We Love The Zoo
Yep! We had a wonderful time at the zoo. Do you like the zoo? Which zoos have you visited?
