July of the Penguins!
July 05, 2011
Two weeks ago, I got to go to the St. Louis Zoo. I had never been and since I frequent the Kansas City Zoo, I was really excited. My favorite part you ask...surprisingly, the penguins. The St. Louis Zoo has an excellent habitat where you can get up right next to the penguins. I was like a kid in a candy store. I have seen March of the Penguins and Happy Feet like everyone else, but I couldn't believe how much personality they all have. They are also very proud little animals. I think I actually have to go see Mr. Popper's Penguins now. If you are an animal and nature lover like me, then you understand.
Curious, I did a little research on the Kansas City Zoo and apparently, they are trying to raise money to bring penguins here. They hope to get them in the next year. I think that would be awesome.
In the meantime, please enjoy these photos from my trip. And, make some time for the zoo this summer. It is very cool, with or without penguins.
