Recently, I realized that you haven’t truly experienced the zoo until you’ve experienced it behind the scenes.
My family has a zoo membership so we go multiples times throughout the year. At this point, I felt like I had seen everything the zoo had to offer.
Out of all the animals, my favorite ones to see are the giraffes and my favorite thing to do is feed them. Every time I see them I think, “God sure has a wonderful imagination to have come up with these animals!”
They are so beautiful and majestic, yet supremely awkward at the same time. And the built-in sunscreen on their tongues – genius design!
Behind the Scenes “Wild Encounter” at the Zoo
On my last visit to the Oklahoma City Zoo, I went with my Leadership Oklahoma City class to learn about the zoo and its planned expansion. As a bonus, they treated us to a behind the scenes “Wild Encounter” with elephants.
We entered the building where the elephants live, and we were given the rare and exciting opportunity to see them up close.
