As the coveted weather of Spring finally arrived last week, I decided to explore the grounds and creatures of the Kansas City Zoo. It officially opened as a Zoological Garden in 1909 with four lions and three monkeys along with other more local animals. The area has since expanded into a 202-acre nature reserve in addition to exhibits, educational programs, and research centers. Today, the park is comprised by a majority of animals from East and West Africa, it also showcases wildlife from regions in Asia, Australia, and under the sea. The Kansas City Zoo proves to be a wonderful area to walk while learning about the diversity of nature and the importance of life’s balance (or, if you will, the “Circle of Life”).
Below are photos of subjects I found interesting during my visit.
