We were invited this past weekend to the LA Zoo Reindeer Romp where you can see live reindeer! This is included in the price. They have about five of them and you will find each of their names at the bottom of the gates. Their are docents there talking about them. It was incredible to learn that both male and female reindeer have antlers.Read More
Last Saturday we were invited to the LA Zoo for the new exhibit Dinosaurs: Unextinct at the LA Zoo. The will be at the LA Zoo now through October 31, 2016. The cost is just $5 extra per person. I suggest that you get the tickets when you are there as the online tickets have an added fee per ticket. The exhibit is located by the California Condor area. So when you walk into the zoo go to the right and you will see your first Dinosaur. Stay there for a minute to see the dinosaur spit water out of its mouth!Read More
If you haven't visited the LA Zoo in a while you are in for a treat with the new Rainforest of the Americas.
This exhibit is so much fun from the youngest to eldest. With a nice shady area to watch the giant river otters play.
The top view you are looking down on the Giant River Otters. You will enjoy seeing them slide down into the water and play in the waterfall. Also a treat hearing them!
You will also see the beautiful Harpy Eagle.
Down below you will come face to face with the Giant River Otters as they play with each other.
My toddler enjoyed watching the Red Bellied Piranah's next door - pictured Kindasillymommy.com little girls!
As you walk through the back you will be greeted with different views of the Giant River Otters, a Baird's Tapir, Cotton-Top Tamarin, Southern Black Howler Monkey (which you will hear them!) and a Red Uakari.
You will also see spiders, snakes, lizards, and frogs. We had a hard time seeing these since the glare from the morning sun was in our way.
At the front of the exhibit you will enjoy watching your kids jump from lily pad to lily pad.
Thank you LA Zoo for letting us come up to see the new exhibit! We had a great time!
