Fort Worth Zoo

We went on a mini-vacation to the DFW area this past week.  Our first stop was the FW Zoo.  Layton had never been and is at the perfect age, so we made a stop.

These pictures are in the bird aviary.  You could buy a stick with bird seed on it for $1 and the birds would come land on your stick and snack awhile.  Those birds are a lot heavier than they look!

The zoo's special exhibit was dinosaurs.  They were all throughout the park and looked REAL!  They would move, blink their eyes and make sounds.  Here is the Dimetrodon.  A full skeleton of it was found in Baylor County, which is where we live.

  1. Looks like you all had a great time! It has been several years since we have been to the Ft. Worth Zoo. I saw the dinosaur exhibit advertised and it looks very interesting.

  2. FuN~FuN~FuN!!! We LOVE the Ft. Worth Zoo too! If the boys liked the dinosaur part you should take them to Glen Rose to the Dinosaur tracks.....really cool!
