Going to the Zoo

Stephanie

Home from last weekend’s retreat but not wanting to shift out of vacation mode, my husband and I took a long drive up into the Pocono Mountains on Tuesday to visit the Paws and Claws Wild Animal Park. This privately owned park is housed in the woods on meandering trails and is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Lions? Yep. White tigers? Yep. black bears? Yep. (Feel free to break out into the song…)

I hadn’t visited this zoo in about a dozen years and it was really nice to see it again. My favorites of the day included the mountain lion, the ever vigilant meerkat and of course, feeding the lorikeets. (That’s my husband Jeff in the picture above.)

  1. Thanks Jen! Per Wiki: Lories and lorikeets (tribe Lorini) are small to medium-sized arboreal parrots characterized by their specialized brush-tipped tongues for feeding on nectar of various blossoms and soft fruits, preferably berries.They are widely distributed throughout the Australasian region, including south-eastern Asia, Polynesia, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and Australia, and the majority have very brightly coloured plumage.
