A visit to the Oklahoma City Zoo!

We met our son and the grandkids at the Oklahoma Zoo for an exciting morning of animal observation. The grandkids love going to the zoo as you can see here. 

 Caleb is really excited about elephants and really got excited about the chance to ride this brass one! The Zoo is really kid friendly and offers many exhibits like this to keep them involved.

 We saw all kinds of animals, including this rhinoceros which is one big critter! We noticed that each animal has a large habitat to live in which must resemble their native area (we assume, since we have never seen a rhino in their native area).

Here we are on the way to the elephant area! The Oklahoma Zoo has recently totally re-built the elephant holding area and is noted as one of the best such areas in the country. 

Sure enough, the walk was worth it. There is now a complete elephant family here at the zoo. The baby shown above was born here a couple years ago. 
We had a great day at the zoo as Abigail and George attest. We were impressed with the zoo and would certainly recommend it to anyone.

Looks like a nice Zoo. I lived in OKC for four years back in the 70's and have no recollection of ever going there:(
