We finally made it to Garden City, to see the animals! Garden City has a great zoo, with a range of native and exotic animals.

Our first experience was with a rhino which, true to the fence's warnings, tried to hit me with a...spray. Even then, some of our favorites were the otters (there's a picture of Theresa watching them perform up above) because of the species' personality. They clearly would wait until they had an audience and only then start playing. There was a somewhat-rare storm that morning, so the flamingos were spinning in circles filtering for microorganisms to eat in their standing water.


We discovered some new-to-us animals, too, like the takin pictured here. I'm convinced it looks like a pig from Star Wars, however, I think it's raised more like cattle in other parts of the world.

The camera battery was low so the pictures taper off as we walked farther through the zoo.
