Memphis was having a heat wave while we were there,but that didn’t stop us from visiting their fantastic zoo. We decided to get there when it opened and stay until the heat did us in.
Our favorite spot was the big cat exhibit.
Memphis is rightfully famous for its giant pandas.
I always regretted not riding a camel when we were in Egypt, so when this opportunity came a knockin’, I jumped aboard.
Okay, so maybe this ride was intended for kids, but hey, I’m down with having a second childhood!
I’ve had mornings when I felt like this elephant looks. In fact, I’ve had mornings when I’ve LOOKED like this elephant looks, especially around the eyes…
Although I have lots more animal shots, I’m going to end this post before wordpress crashes on me. Remote blogging on the iPad is a bit of a challenge, as I’m sure my fellow bloggers will attest. (any tips or hints would be most appreciated!)
