Sometimes, life is really unfair. No matter how hard you worked, or how generous of a person you might have been, the devil don't care and will stink up your life anyways. But, when things get you down, you should just go to the zoo!
Yep, some friends and I went to the Baton Rouge Zoo this past Saturday, and it was a real pick-me-up. I felt like a little kid again, and seeing wild animals up close always intrigues me. If you think about it, like beyond some glass window or cage bars, you are pretty much a foot from a jaguar or a tiger or whatever. This of course was not as good as the New Orleans' Audubon Zoo, but I was still pretty impressed by all the animals. We went in the morning, which was a good idea because by noon all the animals were hiding from the sun.
These are all pictures that my friend Casey took, and yes the giraffe and parrot were both that close to us. I don't know if we have magic animal powers, but they were all doing crazy stuff when we came around. Zoo it up!
