What the Sleepy Animals Do at the Audubon Zoo by Grace MillsapsRhinos rock out. Alligators stroll under limbo polls. Elephants pound the piano. Pelicans cater.
Ever wonder why the animals at the zoo are always so sleepy? What the Sleepy Animals Do at the Audubon Zoo will answer your questions once and for all.
When Renee asks her father why the zoo animals are snoozing all day, he dreams up an elaborate answer. At night, the monkeys steal the zookeepers keys, and all of the animals come out of their cages to dance, eat, and play. By the time the visitors arrive in the morning, the animals are all tuckered out. Renee doesnt believe her fathers tale, but dads have a way of being right about these things...
We Went On Down To The Audubon Zoo
Wedding under the Tree of life - Audubon Zoo
More beautiful than anyone could have ever imagined. Would highly recommend this place for any off beat bride and groom We're frequent visitors to the various structures of the Audubon Institute, and we're admittedly devotees. There's just something about going to the zoo, followed by a picnic with our kids on The Fly, the adjacent park, that captures the imagination and whimsy of Audubon. On this particular visit, we were at the zoo for the last day of the Cool Zoo, the on-site water recreation area. From the lazy river to the splash park, our kids - and yes, even their boring old parents - had a phenomenal time on a hot New Orleans day. We also boarded the train for the tour around the zoo, and took two rides around the gorgeous carousel.
Audubon Zoo is a New Orleans landmark and a living museum filled with some of the rarest and most beautiful creatures of nature. There have been animals at this site since the World Exposition in Audubon Park. Today, Audubon Zoo is 58 acres of animals in their natural habitats. Visitors are enchanted to find a unique wildlife haven full of New Orleans flavor, impressive year old oak trees and a cast of animal characters. Animal favorites include elephants Jean and Panya, the Komodo dragon and a rare white tiger from California, named King Zulu.

Post a Comment. If you've been around me for any length of time, you've probably heard me blabbing about how I work at the zoo, or about how much I love the zoo, or just something about the zoo in general. I just really, really, really love the Audubon Zoo! I've probably been to it about 80 times in my entire life, and I still haven't gotten tired of it. It's an awesome place to spend a day with friends, but also has a lot of history to it. The Audubon Zoo was originally just a part of the neighboring Audubon Park. The fair was very popular with residents, and displayed many exotic animals and plants from all over the world that many people had never seen before.
