Ft. Wayne Childrens Zoo

To wear wool in this heat, you gotta be stupid... or stoned.

Whole buncha little kids on a tour.  They were as fun to watch as the goats.

Laurie, what ARE you doing with those goats?

Uhh... bad time for a picture?  (BTW, you should have heard him grunt!  "RRRRRRRUUHHHHH.... RRRRRRUUUUUUHHHH!!!"

Laurie was told they like being petted.  She'll believe anything...


Hee Haw front porch, Aussie style.

"Yeah, waddaya want?"

Momma and chick

Proud papa

Australian water ride

"Oh, no... the rapids!!!"

It looks like a fish, but it's actually me after lunch.

Seal training.  How's this catch for timing?

"Oh, c'mon, you're too kind..."

The winning bark in the loudest bark contest.

Boy, Scrappy would LOVE him...

From the safari sky ride

We saw something moving on the rock, but had to blow it up to see what they were.  Maybe if we'd noticed Mommy off to the side...

These are satu... sita... uhmm...

...antelopes.  These are antelopes.

Swamp monkeys.  Stars of a new series coming soon on the History Channel.

'Cause that's what I'D be doing if I were a pelican.

Bat-eared foxes

Servals chillin'

Mongoose in the hole!

Big cats pose great!

Winner of ugliest exhibit award.

Never been quite this close to a giraffe.

Laurie feeds him lettuce.

"I've got HAPPY FEET!"

Oh, and Bob, who needs Drew Blair when you got Lee Ann Okuly??!!


  1. Wow! I would love to visit this zoo!

  2. I don't know what is better - the pics or your captions. giggle Both great. I miss the petting zoo. We used to take the kids all the time when they were little and I would still go but they have raised the cost to almost $25 per person. I understand it is expensive to keep animals [wild at that] in the midst of suburbia, but that is a bit much for us when the National Zoo is about $6 in gas away & free.

    Glad you had a good time :)

    1. $25 per for a PETTING zoo?? We got both of us in for $27! And they do a great job of making it a family experience. Maybe you all should come here. Have a nice day at the zoo, and me 'n Pooldad can insult the Reds on channel 8 afterwards.

  3. CWM:
    Those are some GREAT pictures and some funny-ass captions...LOL.

    Love the sleeping Leopard (crouching Chris?)

    And how LONG was that giraffe tongue???
    (pretty damn, I'd bet)

    I will say that Lee Ann sure puts stride into a man's step, that's for sure...
    (you lucky dog, you)

    Considering that Philly has the OLDEST zoo in America, I DO prefer the Ft. Wayne CHildren's zoo because of access, family experience, parking, and pricing.
    (I'm also prone to child-like exuberance, so that works too)

    Can't beat it for the cost...seriously.

    Excellent post (mmmmm, Lee Ann....)

    Stay safe up there.

  4. Fun! I love going to the zoo. That reminds me, I have coupons to the zoo that are about to expire.
