Since our idea of stopping at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center after our camping trip didn't work out, we stopped at the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco, instead. We hadn't been to this zoo in several years, but I remembered it being fun for kids because the exhibits are set up where they can get pretty close to the animals. We also realized Secora has never been to a zoo at all!
Another thing I like about this zoo is that it's set up in a loop fashion. While you're never all that far from the entrance if you decide to leave, you can easily follow the loop and see every exhibit without worrying about missing anything or crisscrossing all over the park. It minimizes the walking for little legs and eliminates debates over what to see next.
The first stop was big birds. Eagles, vultures, and parrots, oh my! Sedona tried her hardest to get the parrots to talk to her, but they weren't going for it.
Of course, they ran right for the giant snake and wanted me to take a picture of them being eaten
reason behind scorpion fluorescence.
