A day with the Animals

For once I don't mean the kids. Yesterday we hung out with some very cool animals at the Magnetic Hill Zoo in Moncton. It was a beautiful day, the kids where well behaved and the animals where all out for us to see so it was a great day.

This was the first animal we encountered.


All the roads where marked by what I assume where sponsors and friends of the zoo.

My favorites of the day where the jaguars. I think it was getting close to feeding time cause they kept stalking this door.


Another favorite was this Mandrill. His face was so colorful.

This one's for you Clare. They are partridges of some kind and the color was fantastic.

As my sister put it... A good Canadian zoo animal.

Mama lion just chillin in the sun....

If you are ever in New Brunswick I highly recommend the zoo. We had a really great day.

I have never seen a live raccoon before! They don't live in the north where I grew up and on trips down south I have only seen the squished on the side of the road.

Looks like a fun spot to visit!

Really Kara?? We got a good laugh that a raccoon was there because here they are everywhere. My parents had one in their garage the other night and it dumped the garbage can twice!

I never think that they aren't everywhere making pests of themselves.

Funny that I lived within 20 min of the zoo my entire childhood and the majority of my adulthood and have never stepped foot in the zoo.
