This was Anita’s and my second time visiting the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. We were on our way from Indianapolis to Findlay, Ohio, and figured heck yeah, let’s stop for a few hours! The zoo is always so well maintained. The paths flow through the zoo in a an effortless, meandering way, making for a nice stroll from exhibit to exhibit.
We got to the zoo as soon as it opened on a slightly foggy day. The zoo quickly filled with children. It’s a popular place!
Since I’d already posted tons of pictures from the zoo before, I decided to just take a few pics, this time concentrating mostly on the faces of the many animals.
If you need a break from walking, don’t miss out on the log or train rides. They are my favorites. I have a rule about zoos. I NEVER miss out on a zoo train ride. Never.
The pic of the peacock is my favorite.
We lucked out and got to the red winged hawk’s cage just as he was eating. By coincidence, we saw a fantastic red winged hawk near the road on the way from the zoo to Findlay, Ohio, about an hour later.
Did you know that turtles can live to be over 200 years old? Wow!
This nice black swan tried to race us while we were floating along on the log ride.
Owls are my favorites. We used to have an owl living in the woods behind our house. We were lucky enough to see him in our backyard a few times.
For a few bucks you can feed the giraffes. The kids at the zoo got a big kick out of it.
If you’re near Fort Wayne, and whether you have children or not, swing by the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. You won’t be disappointed!
