Of Audubon Zoo
When you come to the Audubon Zoo, which is located in New Orleans
Louisiana, you'll find that there are so many amazing animals to
check out, you might not know where to start, but the first place is
to meet the animals!
WATOTO WALK Petting Zoo
For example, Watoto Walk is an
amazing petting zoo where you can pet sheep and goats and they roam
freely in this 3,000 square foot enclosed space, be sure to keep
track of the time as the Walk closes at 3:30 p.m., so you want to
ensure that you don't save this one for last. Your children and
grand children will love this part of the zoo. That is my son and
grand daughter in the pictures below so i know 1st hand the fun the
little ones will have.
Ready to check out the
beautiful pink flamingos? You'll be so surprised when you see them
all standing together. They are so beautiful as they walk with their
tall and elegant long legs. You can ask questions about their
nesting abilities, how they fly, lay eggs and how they raise their
babies. Also ask how they drink water upside down? Because you can
get up close and personal with them, be sure to bring your camera so
you can take pictures.
Next on your to do list is to
check out the bird exhibit the Audubon Aviary. This amazing
interactive exhibit, will let you feed birds and you can actually
put a little bug or a worm and your hand and watch the birds swoop
down to pick them up or throw the bug up in the air and have the
birds fly to catch them. Youíll be surprised when you find out that
there are over 30 different species of birds to see, so be sure to
check them out and try to see if you can take a picture of each one.
Are you really ready to feed the alligator? That's the question you
have to ask yourself as you get ready for this interactive exhibit.
Well, itís not that interactive, you get to stand at a distance
which is a good thing, as you see the alligators being fed. You can
ask different questions about these
animals as you stand and watch them from a good distance at the
Louisiana swamp exhibit.
Next, be sure to check out the
reptile encounter, where you may catch lizards running around, or
you can see turtles that you can pet. Also be sure to check out the
Cobras, Vipers, and chameleons and see if you can catch them
Other animals that you may
want to check out while you're here include the amazing elephants as
they show their strength and power, as well as the really tall
giraffes that you can feed. They have exhibits set up where you can
see them at certain times and feed them, so be sure to check this
TIP FOR PARENTS: See if your
child can catch the chameleon changing colors and get different
pictures for their albums. This can be fun and interactive for them
Ė Just make sure you have a full battery or your charger!
