Today was the day that they feed pumpkins to the zoo animals at the Kansas City Zoo, so I rounded up someone to go with me and spent the late morning and early afternoon there.
The zoo covers a lot of ground but we managed to see almost everything before our feet got tired and we got too hungry for zoo concessions.
Here are some of the photos I took.
Capybaras are my favorite.
The otters were definitely playing to the crowd and they were very cute. However, I can't appreciate their cuteness quite as much now that I know about their dark side.
These birds had a very impressive double nest going. We wondered if they had built it themselves and quickly got our answer when we saw other birds of the same type gathering additional feathers and sticks to add to the pile.
