The Fort Wayne Zoo really IS an impressive zoo, considering Fort Wayne isn’t THAT big. The zoo has several sections, and has three rides plus a carousel and pony rides too. It really seems to have a lot for the little ones, and the prices (especially for the yearly pass) seem good. I went to the Parkview picnic zoo day and it was very, very hot and sunny out.
I got to admire my very favorite Fort Wayne zoo animal, the Red Panda. Red pandas are soo cute! Take a look:
After he obligingly strolled all over the cage for me, he got tired.
While waiting for His Cuteness to start showing off, I hid from the sun under this plant.
I also tried to cool off in the Sky Safari, but the lack of any sort of shade from the sun didn’t really help me get any cooler.
I’m the bottom blob.
Then I had to walk a loong way just to see this guy. But I guess it was worth it.
One of my first stops was at Monkey Island, home of their Capuchin monkeys. This one was sticking his tongue out.
