I recently took a vacation to Colorado with some friends. The first place we went was the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs. It’s a beautiful zoo, and it’s literally on the side of a mountain, so the layout is really neat and you often get to view the animals from above without bars in the way! This made for some great photo opportunities. Above is a baby giraffe, which is one of the first animals we saw!
Can you see this giraffe’s tongue? The giraffes were obsessed with licking these poles for some reason! Makes you wonder how they taste!
And the lion! This lion had been looking away, but one of my friends heard one of the workers say what his name was, so we started saying his name, and he actually looked up at us and that’s how I was able to get this picture!
This was a female peacock with a white coloring. Not fully albino, but a really rare color for a peacock. It was sitting down, and a guy came up and touched it, and when it stood up there were three little babies underneath! So cute!
