San Diego

San Diego Wild Animal Park

Kate and I went to visit my mom in San Diego last month, and spent a day at the Wild Animal Park.

This is where the luckiest animals in the world get to live. It doesn’t feel like a zoo at all, but a large, open space preserve. Some animals live to over twice their average age in the wild.

It was baby season so we got to see lots of cute babies. The elephants are my favorite.

And we brought home this giraffe. We call him Fatty.

My mom lives in San Diego now, so a couple months ago Kate and I went to visit her. Of course that meant a trip to the world famous San Diego Zoo. Really a phenomenal place. The highlights were the pandas, polar bear, giraffes, elephants, and rhinos.
 
I love lions and tigers, but they rarely put on good shows at zoos. They usually just sleep all day! Then again, so do koalas, but at least you can get up close to them. I wish I could sleep all day. What a great life 😉
