Sedgwick County Zoo

On the way back from Missouri, we spent a night in Wichita, Kansas. We then visited the Sedgwick County Zoo. This zoo is awesome! It's not Omaha, but not far off! There are so many exhibits to see and they are all divided into areas of the world. Each animal has a very detailed explanation that shows where they are found in the world, what they eat, if they are close to extinction, what is being done to save them in the wild and more. I really felt we got a very up close and personal view of almost all animals in a very clean environment. In several exhibits the animals are just roaming around and you just stay out of their way. For example, in Austrailia the wallabys are hiding in the grass and will move around as they please! Calla really enjoyed the tigers and the bears! In the Asian petting zoo she really enjoyed this little sheep that was out of the fence and she would follow him around to pet him. I really suggest this zoo to all of you!
