Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium!!!

Kyecen and I went to the Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium with my mom and brother Dylan! This had to be the coolest zoo I've ever been to. It felt like the animals were closer, and you were just able to do more.

We saw an animal show that had a Falcon, a Macaw, an albino python, a giant porcupine, a kinkadu, and some funny long legged bird,

 went to the baby nursery, this is a baby dik dik (its like a mini dear)

rode the merry-go-round,

fed the ducks,

saw LOTS of monkeys,

saw all the "cats",

saw alligators (they have a couple albino alligators),

fed the giraffes,

petted the antelopes,

and the zebras,

rode the train THROUGH the animal areas, then petted goats, llamas, and chickens at the petting zoo and played on the playground.

Then we went to the aquarium and saw all kinds of fish and aquatic animals, Kyecen touched the starfish, crabs, and sea urchins in the tide pools, he thought that was sooo cool!

They have a giant (and I mean GIANT) turtle....
which I compare in size and looks to Tokka from TMNT II...ugly!! and HUGE!!!

Then we went through the predator building and saw the sharks and eels...and even got to touch the sting rays and a baby nurse shark in the pool! Dylan even fed the Sting rays...or the one greedy guy that knew what was going on (no pics just a video...maybe I'll figure out how to get that posted?!)
 Then we finished off the day with dinner while watching the shark tank!! So cool!

(missing pictures at the end because our phones, and camera died...but there is so much cool stuff!)

I hope anyone that likes animals gets a chance to get to this zoo, its soo much better than the phoenix zoo! Next time we'll bring Rob, he's definitely jealous..
