One area of this zoo which proved to be quite interesting is the Florida Wildlife Center. Here we were able to view turtles, alligators, a panther and black bears. An interesting fact we learned about the latter is that in warmer areas of the country as Florida they do not hibernate during the winter, only sleep a lot.
It was also feeding time in the skunk den while we were there. I did not get a good picture of it, but skunks were out wandering among ibis and sand hill cranes while a zoo keeper was tossing out some sort of food, that was an unusual sight!
That is some of our highlights while we were at the Lowry Zoo. Fortunately our admission ticket allows us to come back again when we can take in some of the animal shows and keeper talks.
