Phoenix zoo

Its hard to see but these orangutans were playing hide and seek under this sheet. I thought the zoo was suppose to be a replica of their habitat. I guess I did not know they had linens in the wild. Oh! I almost forgot; If anyone takes their little ones to the zoo the small monkeys are NAUGHTY!!!! I was holding Alli and two tiny monkeys were within arms distance looking at us when all of a sudden the one decided to get crazy! My friend Liz and I started laughing and I just told Alli the one was giving the other a piggy back ride! Why couldnt they just eat bugs out of each others hair or something???
All Alli had to say about this was "hmmm neck". That about summed up her excitement for these guys.
My husband is always telling me that flamingos are pink because they eat so much shimp. I did not see anywhere for them to get shrimp and no one was serving shrimp cocktails. Anyone know the truth????? And where do they hide their other leg?
Alli wanted to climb all the fences to get a better look at the zebras she calls horses.
The zoo was totally fun. I have lived in Phx for ten years and have not been before. Its no San Diego zoo but with my lack of knowlege of wildlife Ill start here then move up.

Fun outing! My kids loved the zoo when they were little. Monkeys are always gross. At least they weren't flinging poo.
