I’ll let you in on a little secret. Memphis can actually do one thing, other than BBQ Ribs, right. Yep, the Memphis Zoo. We spent 7+ hours here this last Wednesday. And what a glorious day it was….perfect temps & comfortable humidity for all the humans and animals to play outside! The Memphis Zoo is also home to YaYa and LeLe and 1 of the 4 zoos in the U.S. that has Giant Pandas. They have a $16 million home here….. I sure hope they’re happy.
Here we are visiting Primate Canyon. This guy was a bit on the nervous side. Nervous gorillas — not good.
I kept waiting for the ballet, but she was more interested in food on the ground.
This is a Chinese Alligator. You can tell by the …… never mind. She, or he, does not want to be our friend.
My favorite! South something or other penguins. They actually love our Memphis climate. You should see them do their penguin thing to the tune of ZZ Top’s Sharp Dressed Man. LOL!
Travel Tip: When in Memphis, skip Graceland, do the zoo, and eat plenty of Memphis-style ribs.
