Let's Take a Pretend Trip to the Zoo: Pictures and Videos

Updated on March 27, 2014

A Visit to the Zoo

Visiting animals at the zoo can make for a very fun day for both kids and adults. Unfortunately it isn't always possible to get to one in person.

Instead, come with me on a pretend trip with pictures and videos of a variety of animals, including zebras, flamingos, and an adorable chimpanzee, along with some interesting facts. Maybe you'll see your favorite!

      My favorite would have to be either a yeti or a sasquatch, hard to choose between the two. Tyrannosaurus Rex is always fun to see as well. Especially when he gets one of the yetis or sasquatches.
