An Afternoon at the Louisville Zoo

Afternoon in late July may not be the best time to see animals at their most active, but it is a good, lazy way to spend the day. As I've mentioned before, the zoo is a lovely place to take children, but it's also a great place to animal watch, people watch, and take a look at what nature has to offer. The Louisville Zoo offers great walking, beautiful habitats, and a few opportunities for food and drink.

Gorilla Forest provides information about gorilla habitat and information about the issues surrounding poaching, shrinking habitat, and conservation efforts.

Scotty is the name of our baby elephant. Now a year old, Scotty is enjoying new foods, playing in the water and basically acting like any excited, happy child.

The Zoo has a refurbished carousel that is both beautiful to see and (based on enthusiastic laughter of children) a joy to ride.
