The Phoenix Zoo

While on Christmas break in Arizona, we took a trip to the Phoenix Zoo, which happens to be a great place for animals from Africa! Here we are with giraffes and water buffalo-like animals.

Bruce grew up 5 miles from the LA zoo and his dad used to take the kids to the zoo every year. The highlight of every trip was when animals would relieve themselves. Fortunately, this trip was no disappointment and we saw the tiger below relieve herself.

We got to walk into a monkey area and watch them run around. We were within a foot of a monkey several times as they climbed trees, jumped across ropes, and ran across benches. The monkeys weigh only 1.5 lbs and one of them is over Christie's shoulder.

..and just for good measure, here's a picture of giraffes.
