Omaha Zoo Animals

Today we visited Omaha's Henry Dooly Zoo. This was truly a treat. I have never been to a zoo this excellent. You could visit 3 or 4 days and still not see everything this zoo has to offer. One of the highlights was a real rainforest with animals co-existing in the habitat that includes waterfalls, fish, and birds in a tropical plants. The other wonderful experience is a complete sea aquarium that you walk through. Numerous sharks, sea turtles, stingrays, and fish are literally swimming over you and all around you. As you continue through the aquarium you find a jellyfish aquarium and many typical salt-water fish aquariums. The zoo also has a dessert biosphere, a real steam engine that chugs around the entire zoo, a carousel, and of course all the wonderful and exotic animals you hope to see at the zoo. Here is just a small sample of some of the magnificent animals we saw. It was such a feast for the eyes. As a result, I will have a few posts about it!
