Zoo's Clues

Some may think that the leopard is one of the most dangerous cats, but it has never had to face this kitty. . . Just kidding. 

During the summer I planned to go to Hogle Zoo (at Salt Lake City) to show my daughter a real-life giraffe, her favorite animal so far. We initially planned to go the beginning of the summer, but then my family got Covid, and it took us longer to recover. Well, since General Conference is approaching and the giraffe at the zoo just had a baby, we thought this would be a prime time to go see the giraffes. 

Sadly, the day that we went the giraffes didn’t come out because KSL was filming about the newest addition. Even though we were not able to see them there were many other fun animals.

I have never been to Hogle Zoo before, and I forgot how much I enjoy being at the Zoo. The last time I went to one was right before my mission over a decade ago. I do not know who enjoyed it more me or my daughter. There were so many exotic animals and even though it was hard to see some of them, the ones that we did see looked majestic. I can see myself going to the zoo more often so I can get a good view of all the animals. I also like that this is a place were we can learn more about the animals.

You cannot trust the predators in the zoo, they are always lion.

Looking at all these animals I couldn’t help but think about the creation of the world. In Genesis 1:24 it says, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.” And in Genesis 2:20 “And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.” God spent the same amount of time to create the animals as he did to split the night from day and to make man. This tells me that they are important enough to spend time creating a variety of them.

My favorite animal is the tiger and even though it was asleep I felt like a kid looking at it. I would be willing to come back to the zoo and watch it while it is awake. I wouldn't mind seeing it eat either. I have only been to two zoo's that had tigers and both times they were asleep. One day I will see them awake. 

 I need to know what time it is rhino.

I have never seen a rhino before and it looks so cool! I wish I could see it play around. 

I dreamed that monkeys were falling out of the sky. It was a real ape-ril shower.

Here is an ape just chilling trying to stay out of the sun. 

Snakes are only measured in inches - they don't have feet.

I am not a fan of snakes, but I don't want my daughter scared of them. It's a good thing I am not terrified of them. When I came across this snake I thought the colors were cool. I wouldn't want to own one, but I will admit it looked cool. 

Being inside playing games, watching movies/shows/games, reading books are relaxing and gives us a period to escape from our daily demands from life, but we can have fun being outside as well. I enjoyed my time at the zoo, I am planning on going back with my family. What outdoor activity do you like?
