Sharks in the Desert

Z loves sharks. Mandalay Bay has sharks. Therefore, we go see the sharks.

Oswald's Bear Ranch

I must have misread the signs. I thought they said Beer Ranch. Somebody, get this bear a beer. ;)

Ostrichland USA

Get up close and personal with giant birds at Ostrichland USA in Solvang, California.

See emus.

See ostriches.

See ostriches see you.

Feed emus.

Feed ostriches.

But, please don't fight ostriches.


Reid Park Zoo

Reid Park Zoo in Tucson, Arizona, is my favorite zoo. I've never lived in Tucson but have been to this zoo more than any other. The zoo contains an impressive collection of animals yet is small enough that long hikes aren't required between exhibits.
