Last week, I went back to visit St. Louis. It was super awesome and great to see everybody – and to revisit one of my favorite haunts, the St. Louis Zoo. Best part was seeing its newest member, a polar bear (that joined the zoo right after I left STL…sigh). Check it out!
This guy was NOT a little, cuddly bear! Look at its size next to these kids!
And when it stood up, it was well over 7 (8?) feet. It towered above all the adults. Seriously, don’t mess.
But when it was playing with its keg or shaking its fur like a dog, I couldn’t help but be charmed by this “little” guy! He gave the sea lions a run for their money to being my favorite STL zoo animal.
Here’s another not so great shot of the bear, but it really shows its size. On another note, I really should go out shooting again…my skills are getting a little rusty :\
We also checked out the penguin exhibit after it being closed for a year. Not much has changed…
Personally, I think the Sea World penguin exhibit was one of the best I’ve ever seen. They had penguins for days. I mean, just look: click.
But what mattered the most was spending time with my people. And it was good.
What’s your favorite zoo? Zoo animal?
Thanks for reading!
