A Day at the Fort Worth Zoo
One of the advantages of living in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is having an abundance of things to do. For example, Dallas and Fort Worth each have their own zoological parks. I’ve never been to the zoo in Dallas, but back in the spring of 2011, I went with some friends to the Fort Worth Zoo. It was ninety degrees and sunny: hot, but not miserably so. In any case, the bright and sunny weather made for some good photos. Here are my favorites.
I’ve never been a big zoo person, but the Fort Worth Zoo does have its fair share of interesting animals. I remember going to the zoo as a kid and seeing animals pacing around small, bland cages. Some of the exhibits nowadays still seem too small, but like most zoos in the US, things are getting better. Of course, larger cages make the animals harder to photograph, but it’s a small price to pay for the happiness and well-being of the animals.
Those are my thoughts on the Fort Worth Zoo. One of these days soon, I should go to the Dallas Zoo for a comparison. When I do, I’ll try to post some pictures here.
Nice photos…but boy,you are no zoologist The croc/alligator is neither – its a Gharial, your `lesser Kudu` is a Southern Gerenuk and i must have been about two years old when i last mistook a rhino for a hippo!
