Okay, we are putting the final touches on DD's "Create your own thing" project for 4-H... Here goal is to use this book to get little kids excited to go to a zoo by being able to see and identify animals in this book...
She is creating an ABC Book for the Zoo...
However, we are short some photos..

A ~ Alligator
J ~ Jellyfish (or if anyone has anything else J named)
K ~ Kangaroo (we have Wallabys..but not kangaroos!)

U~ Can anyone think of a good thing for this.. I thought of "Unusual Encounters" because we now have a Shark "pet tank"... Do you think that will work?

Thanks for any help you all can give us...

I like "Unusual Encounters". Or, you could do "Underwater Friends" or, being a little Disney, "Under the Sea". Though, I guess technically, it's not the sea. But, still! :rotfl2:

Thanks! I was just going through my AK photos tonight and that was one of the animals I didn't know the name for! I may have to post some others and see if you all can help ID them.

These are from the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. Several Kangas and one tiger just because it was a lucky shot.

I know I have an alligator and an albino peacock. I think I even found a kangaroo (but it might have been a wallaby too. :)) I love the idea of under the sea! I'm getting ready to go to a garden train exhibit, so I'll post them when I have time to look for them.

Thanks everyone!!! Keep them coming!!!!
I figured one of our DISers or FLA girls would have an alligator!!!!

Vanyel, if you ever get a chance to come to the Indy Zoo...the best time to come is when it is really cool.... the animals are very active.. I have some great pictures of the lions doing a figure 8 by the fence.. I'll post those later today.... We also got the siberan tiger playing with his rubber ball!!! That was the best visit we had had to see those two animals actually doing something rather than sleeping!!!

Those are awesome DianaLyn!!!

We had a koala on a brief visit one year about 12 years ago... I wish they'd get one to live at the zoo permanently...

Diana Lyn
07-03-2007, 09:07 AM
The Kangaroo and the Koala are both from the Columbus Zoo, the ONLY fun thing about going to visit my in-laws once a year!!

The baby koala had just been born like a month earlier when I took the photo last year and they were only letting people into the exhibit at certain times to visit with them.

The Kanga exhibit in Columbus is SO cool. It's open like a petting zoo, so the kangas are hopping down the paths as you walk through. My DD who was 2 at the time was hopping the entire time we were in there.

Our Wallabys use to roam free in one section.....but when they re-did the area and moved the elephants up on the hill and over a ways they took that "free wallaby" section out... I think they were probably anticipating a few wallabys being trampled by elephants...

We did however notice a beautiful white bird (cockatoo maybe) in a tree but it wasn't where you could really exhibit it... I just happened to look over that way because we were going to feed the lorikeets.... So the bird was really in a "free" exhibit...

I just saw this thread, Nancy. I see you're all taken care of with good Kanga pics. I've got several from Brookfield, too. Need any Polar Bear shots? I've got several from Brookfield, but they were taken pre-digital. Could be scanned, though. My alligator shots are also pre-digital.

I love your DD's idea (or your idea) of doing an ABC Zoo album. I might consider doing that.

Good luck!!

07-03-2007, 10:54 AM
I'm still needing an alligator if you can spare one!!! :)

She was flipping thru one of the scrapbooking magazines and saw this and it just happened to work out.... We probably would have done it anyway, eventually....but this was too good to pass up for this project!!! ;)

Back to work!! I'll check in later....

Can you email the photo... when I download it.. it said it was low quality... problem something I did wrong..

thanks bunches!!!!
Do they still have that albino alligator in the Cinci zoo.. it was in a building at one point...

AlexWyattMommy
07-03-2007, 11:35 AM
It is probably something to do with the uploading to photobuckets. I'll email you the original photos. We never did make it to the zoo, we went to Newport instead. That is where the alligator is from.

We plan on the Indy zoo one of these days - just seem to have to much to do lately to get there. Everytime I get to Indy, I'm going to a meeting usually with someone else so I can't sneak off to do any fun stuff.

All three pictures are from the Cape May Zoo. The gators were hanging out under the heat lamp and were right up against the window. We were separated by about an inch or so of glass, but they were close enought to touch. :eek:

I knew you all would have her back... We are almost done.. this will be project #4 complete.. with 2 more that are 75% done!!! Yeah!

Okay, back to the 4-H club scrapbook so I can journal tonight and count those pages up to post on the July challenge.... I have alot done that just need journalling..
Than I need to take photos of some of the Epcot WS I did that I just swap elements on!

Really Mickster, how do you get such cool shots of the animals? It's almost as if you can tell them how to pose. Wish my DH could do that.

PrincessNancy96
07-04-2007, 01:22 PM
I know.. she must sit and animal watch for hours with her kids to get those awesome shots! Heck, the only good shots of some animals I have were taken last Dec. 30th...
:)
I still need to post them... Needless to say, unless there is s*** on the ground we are going back and hoping the animals are just as active..

Now, off to develop some photos for the 4H club book... My idea for the "Brady Bunch" like page for the members is turning out pretty cool... basic but cool....

It is a very cool zoo. My kids call it Mimi and Papa's zoo. :)

I just happened to catch the hippo at the Philadelphia Zoo. It was weird. No one was in front of me and there he was. (at least, I think it is a he...);)

I got the hippo and the albino peacock photos developed.. I hadn't shown DH the peacock yet..and he asked what was wrong.. I said "duh"... she painted it for ya! Oh, okay... drive a little farther down the road and he said... it was an albino... To which the kids start laughing and offer him a cookie for his accomplishment!

that is way too funny! my dh made those once upon a time. at his 1st job!!!! every time i see a hippo i have to say hungry, hungry hippos!!!!!!! brings me right back. thanks for that memory.

nancy, love the book. i think it came out great. thanks for sharing it with us.

mickster, love the pics of the hippos. dh and i were talking about this thread and he said "hey you have pics of hippos from the philly zoo". then we saw yours and they said they were from the philly zoo. that is a beautiful zoo. not the best neighborhood, but a beautiful zoo once your inside!!!!
we actually went to the zoo today in providence. they are re-doing some of it. they took out the polar bears. i was disappointed in that. they do have a baby giraffe, who is very cute. and another on the way!

I live in RI and we are disappointed every time we go. My kids love the polar bears. They took out the exhibit to redo it into a state of the art facility. They had good luck with breeding and got two cubs Triton and Kobe from Trixie and Norton but Trixie passed away when they were moving her to Indianapolis.

The new exhibit is scheduled for 2010 which seems so far away

She didnt make it out of the zoo. They sedated her to get her in the cage and when they gave her the reveral drug, she stopped breathing. She had never had a problem in the past, so it came as a complete shock. She was a much beloved polar bear for our state. She was to have come back this year. :o(


here is a link to a nice memorial to her

i remember when triton and kobe were born. we really missed those bears yesterday. i have pics somewhere (on film) from when they were babies. how sad. i knew she passed but i could not remember when. dh and i were talking about it late last night. poor trixie! loved her!
