You're pics look great glad you had a good time, isn't it awesome to hear the lions roar in person I know I love it when I hear it as well as tigers and what not.

The zoo here is knowen for its giraffe population the biggest one in the US they breed them and give them to other zoos and what not but I wish they would stop we have to many at the moment I love giraffes but its like they never stop mating.

Waynetravis if they heard it that would be one sick rhino makes me think of a movie ice age I think it was when the mammoth thought some animal was another mammoth but it was an animal going the bathroom.

Now that made me think of this clip it might not be animal taking a dump in the forest but its still funny I think also explain what swain flu really is

Nice video!

Hey thats cool that you are a zoo tech....before sunday the last time i had been to any zoo was in Colorado Springs back in 94! Honestly i dont remember much except it seemed like it was up in the mountains sort of and you had a really nice view, and it was really nice up there. I seem to remember a really big tiger...thats about it because we didnt stay for a real long time for whatever reason. I was visiting my sister and she was stationed at Ft Carson. That was a beautiful place!

Of course its true, well, its actually Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium and its also known by its previous name Owen Field. But the Gaylord family (who owns half of the country it seems) donated a shitload of money to OU which in turn paid for the massive stadium renevation a few years back, so they re-named the stadium after them.

But yeah, dont think people here in the Bible belt dont scratch their heads a bit with a name like Gaylord is one of the most prominent around. I guess its just one of those funny things...

Kind of like there used to be a Pontiac Dealership in Texas, "Gay Pontiac" in the town of "Dickinson Texas". Say that really s l o w l y

Thank you, that would be Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, I volunteer there a lot as well as do a lot of my studies there with the zoo tech program, from my understanding we're the only zoo in the mountains in The US, I think it's pretty cool, they have changed a lot starting to get rid of the old cages and giving the animals brand new exhibits and more room and everything. They still need to work on the old monkey house which use to be the old cat house back in the 90's might be where you saw the tiger at and fix the elephant exhibit they just built a brand new exhibit which is very beautiful its called the Rocky Mountain Exhibit we got some new grizzlies, a moose, and few other new critters. Its pretty cool to check out. It is pretty beautiful up there, only thing I don't like is the up hill walk its a pain at time.

Glad you liked the video that video always makes me laugh one of my favorites

i seem to remember something about a long walk up there....like they had several levels of exhibits because it was in the mountains...or something like that.

Feel free to post pictures sometime if you want to, or if you dont mind. Im sure we'd love to see them.

I went to the Memphis Zoo a few years back, it was awesome. They had pandas and it was so clean and beautiful. I went to the Roger Williams Zoo a month ago- it was ok, nothing like Memphis. Some day I'd love to make it to the San Diego Zoo.

San Diego Zoo is one of my dream zoos to work at or at lest internship there. I also love Cininatti Zoo in Ohio was the first zoo I went to that was all open. I fell in love there with the manatee there who also fell in love with me lol kept coming to me at the glass and giving me kisses then when I left he went to his own corner and stayed there, guess he was in love.

I may have pictures from there as well, I'm still uploading and Im in class right now so I have to wait until I get home tonight. I have alot of animal pictures on my computer I can see what I can upload is you're interested

Anywhere I can go and enjoy animals Im the happiest person on the planet and so at peace its like they heal me from the inside out and help me forget all the negative.

I'm huge about tigers I love them all even though the white tiger is my favorite even though they are inbreed sadly to say, I'm also huge on bird of prey and marine animals.

I wish I had pictures when I got to release a redtail hawk back into the wild last fall, I cried cause I always wanted to experience that and to see eagles fly was amazing.
