Our second day in Florida we spent seven hours at Tampa’s famous Lowry Park Zoo. We took hundreds of photos and saw a lot of cool birds and other animals. Here’s some of them.
The super rare Okapi
Relatives to giraffes!
One of the coolest experiences we had at the zoo was the opportunity to feed the White Rhinos. Stacia was able to even pet the baby!
We also saw the zoo staff feeding African penguins.
We saw Meerkats who nervously watched the Fish Crows and Turkey and Black Vultures flying overhead.
The orangutans were entertaining, especially a young one.
The zoo also had two baby Clouded Leopards!
I had the opportunity to feed some Lorikeets.
Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo was perhaps the best zoo experience we have ever had (and we live near Brookfield Zoo which is amazing). They have tons of birds and the layout is easy to navigate and provides a lot of open areas to view animals in natural settings.
But the most important thing Lowry Park Zoo does is in their education and conservation efforts. They are one of the most well-respected zoos and provide an amazing amount of insight into some of the world’s most magnificent animals.
Plus, they are a great place to bring young children to engage them in learning about the wonderful natural world we live in.
