Cincinnati Zoo Lower lot entrance to the Cincinnati Zoo. We have been the Zoo every year and still can't find the entrance on the fisrt time. Usually we are right on top of it and still miss it. I say we'll take the exit that says Zoo and follow the signs. Problem is some of the signs are missing. So we get lost on our way to the Zoo.
Cincinnati Zoo BIG furry spider!!!
Cincinnati Zoo Cool Beetle!
Cincinnati Zoo Glow in the dark Scorpions. They were very active and really cool looking.

Cincinnati Zoo Hey am I looing in a mirror or is that my long lost brother???
Cincinnati Zoo Kristina turning to look at me...isn't she soooo cute.
Cincinnati Zoo This Bald Eagle was HUGH. This picture really does it no justice. It was just so very impressive.
Cincinnati Zoo Kristina loved the gardens at the Zoo. There were so many and they were very well kept. We have several of those plants in our yard now.
Cincinnati Zoo Grrrrrr....This big gator was hissing and lunging. This gator looks like plastic in this photo but I assure you it was alive and hissing.
Cincinnati Zoo These gators were much more mellow...kinda spooky how they watch your every move. Like they are hoping you make a mistake so they'll have a juicy snack.
Cincinnati Zoo Michael and Kristina standing in front of Monkey Island's waterfall. Michael was like no more pictures dad...gosh.
Cincinnati Zoo Michael and Kristina planning the after lunch attach on the Zoo. Don't tell Michael I took this shot. He didn't want anymore shots of him on my camera.
Cincinnati Zoo White Tiger cooling off in the shade under that small ledge. Other than it's tail it didn't move an inch.
Cincinnati Zoo This guy was just sun bathing and looking at the water.
Cincinnati Zoo These are white Lions. This photo makes them look like regular Lions but they were so white. White like snow.
Cincinnati Zoo She was looking at us and licking her lips. I think she was feeling threatened by Kristina.
Cincinnati Zoo White Lion close up....leave me alone I am sun bathing, I don't want to be bothered.
Cincinnati Zoo I think this was a Flamingo...not really sure though.
Cincinnati Zoo This was a huge bird cage with all these parrots. You could get little containers of necter to feed them. With all the people that pass through there you'd think they would be full. As soon as you got the necter in your hand they fly down land on you eat a like necter then walk all over you.
Cincinnati Zoo This bird wanted what was on Michael's neck.
Cincinnati Zoo This bird was persistant and just kept nibbling at Michael's collar.
Cincinnati Zoo Here's one climbing up my shirt sleave. I didn't think this picture would come out but it came out better than I thought.
Cincinnati Zoo Well this bird finally left Michael's neck and found his rings. Rings was a part of his punk skater phase.
