Reptilian Rascals

We spent the beautiful Fall day at the zoo; Daddy and I at zoo class, and Mommy and Lily just roaming around. I've been looking forward to this class for awhile since it was all about snakes, lizards, alligators, and turtles. Dad and I are reptile experts now that we've taken the class. We learned all sorts of interesting things, like the fact that all turtles have 13 spots. Bet you didn't know that?!?! We got to study a snake skeleton and get up close and personal with the turtles. I loved that all the snakes we saw were slithering around, and the alligator we saw came all the way from China. I don't know where that is, but the teacher said it was really far away so it must be cool! Lily enjoyed her day too. All of the animals were out because the temperatures are cooler now. She got to meet the zoo's newest addition, the lion triplets. She also saw a few of her favorites like the seals, zebra, and penguins. The polar bear even came out today which is a rarity. The only animal she didn't get to see was the badger. He is new to the zoo, and he never comes out of his hole. We're beginning to wonder if he really exists. Guess we'll have to visit again soon so we can find out!
