    Well guys, yesterday I went on a trip to Philadelphia. Went to the US's oldest zoo. Which in turn would be the first zoo. Now I love animals... and I took a picture of just about everything. Here is a few (a lot) of pictures of what I saw at the zoo!

    Cool pics! I have not been since I was a child and they had the zoo keys, or "zookies" as we called them. When they took them away i was so sad. I heard they brought them back. Since moving out of Philly to Lehigh Valley have not been there. My kids have never been there........

    Awesome! We're going in a couple weeks, my youngest has never been there and the oldest was there about 8 years ago. My mom lives about 40 minutes from there, we are about 3 hours.

    That is really neat! Those are some beautiful animals!

    I remember going to a mall in Lancaster once and they had huge dinosaurs that moved and roared. It was really neat!
