Baby Fever

In August when mom and dad were up visiting me (Darren was out of town), we went to the zoo.  I have to say I was quite impressed with our zoo.  It's small, very walking friendly and packs a good amount of animal punch in such a small space!

There were lions and tigers and bears (oh my) but what really attracted me to the zoo so early in moving to Indy was their baby elephant named Kalina!  She was about two weeks old when they put her out in the zoo with her mom. In these pictures I think she was 18 days old.  Too cute!

There was also a really young giraffe who was adorable!

They zoo also had traditional animals.  Cheetahs.

Black Bears.



And Polar Bears.

One of the neatest features of the zoo is their sea life exhibits.  They have a large group of dolphins and a dolphins that perform almost hourly.

The zoo had multiple types of penguins.  They are so adorable, but for some reason, stand with their backs to you so its hard to get a good shot of one.

Seahorses are one thing I've never seen at a zoo and they had about 30!

And the jellyfish exhibit is mesmerizing!

And the sea lions liked to show off for the crowds.

It was a really nice visit to the zoo!
