Brookfield Zoo Highlights Part 1

I am a total animal lover!  I talked my family into visiting the Brookfield Zoo while we were in Chicago.  This zoo spreads over 200 acres and is really awesome!

I am a lot shorter than a bear...but I am also taller than 4"...the picture lies LOL

This polar bear was awesome.  We got to see it eat marrow from a bone in the neat!

Points to anyone who knows what this animal is.  I couldn't find a sign anywhere.

I love this rhino!  It looks so sweet :)

I am just gonna do a few pictures here and there so as not to overwhelm anyone!

I love a day-long visit to a good zoo. The last time I went, was to the Houston Zoo with my nieces...several years ago.

They loved it and I loved it. And I could have stood and watched the monkeys for hours. HOURS!

I can't imagine 200 acres of must've had a fabulous time!

How exciting! There is a front entrance and a back entrance to the Brookfield Zoo. My High School is at the back entrance. I grew up there and sometimes we would walk through the zoo to get home if we missed the bus! When I read Water for Elephants I was so excited because at the end of the book he ended up staying at the Brookfield Zoo. They changed it for the movie.
