A Zoo Worth Visiting

It seems that if you've seen one zoo, you've seen them all, but we thoroughly enjoyed the Milwaukee County Zoo. Maybe it was because the temps were only in the mid 70's or that the zoo was laid out very well with lots of shaded areas, or the fact that there were so many interesting animals to choose from. Whatever the case, the Milwaukee County Zoo is one of the nicest zoos that we've been to, and believe me, we've been to a lot.

The kids' top pick -- the primates. There were many species and several had babies. There were orangutans, gorillas, spider monkeys and lemurs, just to name a few. Another a big hit with boys were the Birds of Prey. We met a blind eagle that was in captivity because it had been shot in the eye, and a crow that flew through the audience picking up cans and putting them in the recycling bins.

If you're in the Milwaukee area, the zoo is definitely worth a visit.
