An Animal Affair: St. Louis Zoo

Since I’ve been such a bad blogger lately, I am just now getting around to posting about our trip to the zoo two weekends ago. I had been nagging asking J to go to the zoo since Summer, but let’s face it, 95 degrees and animal droppings do not sound like fun. As it turns out our procrastination paid off and we just happened to have one last weekend where it was 70 and sunny. We seized the opportunity and off to the St. Louis Zoo we went.

Oh, look it’s a monkey. Wait, what is he doing…..
Just enjoying a little snack that he pulled from his rear end!
That’s right. In front of a full crowd, this little guy decided to eat his own poop. And without shame I might add. For a good five minutes he proudly looked at all the cameras as they flashed away trying to capture this hilarious moment.
This peacock came strolling by us and hopped right into the area with the ground hogs.
You can’t really tell from this picture, but I thought that this monkey looked just like a wise old grandma monkey and so full of wisdom.

Our day at the zoo was so much fun and this little man had a blast!

Crazy how much things change in a year.
