Asheboro ZOO

Mr. Reed and I got the opportunity to spend the day at the NC Zoo. Here is a view of our trip!

I think he could use a manicure!

Not one of my favorites!

The red rubber "thingy" is used in training.
They have to touch their noses to it and each time they do they get a treat.


Seals and Sea Lions




I love giraffes!!


Mr. Reed took this shot!

May was the month for orchids. They had several different ones placed around the park.
Beautiful!




A little rain shower while we were eating lunch.

Note on red bottoms: on these female monkeys if the bottoms are bright red and swollen it
means she's ready to mate. Sure am glad this does not happen to all females! :)

Cooling themselves off with a little mud!

We enjoyed our day trip and the exercise we got while learning about and watching the animals.
