Last year Jaiden and I went to the Cape May County Zoo while with my dad for a weekend. We were going to head to the beach but the traffic was just too much, so we detoured to The Cape May County Zoo and in my opinion, it was well worth it.
I hope you enjoy taking the trip with us through the photos I have taken.
Please note, this post is photo heavy!
I am a huge fan of the zoo. I know there are a lot of people who are not a fan because of the animals being caged up and what not, which I totally understand. I am all about animals living in their natural habitat. But we are not here to speak politics on the zoo.
I love all creatures and think they are fascinating. With that being said, let’s begin our tour of the Cape May County Zoo
This beauty stayed way back in his/her cage but I was able to get a nice shot of him or her. I think owls are beautiful but a Snowy Owl is just Stunning. I mean that white coat is just beautiful.
I love pork but pigs are just too cute!! I mean I know they are messy but come on. They are just so darling!
Red-Tailed Hawk – I don’t think I have to say much here. I mean he/she is just absolutely stunning! I couldn’t take my eyes off of him/her. She/he just sat there looking pretty, moved just a bit, enough for me to get another angle. =) I think it was on purpose! — Don’t disagree and ruin it for me! HAHA
You can’t go wrong with a cow. I mean she’s a cutie for sure and would not stay still! Everyone was giving him so much attention and she sure did love it! Jaiden, the little guy in the blue, was excited to be able to feed her.
I want a goat…. Do I need to say more? =)
I didn’t think so…. =P
I love Peacocks! I think their colors are just stunning and are full of life. I mean look at that blue! It’s just so blue and screams looks at me! This dude was all about showing off. It was funny. Animals are seriously so smart! He just walked around strutting his stuff!
This guy too. Mr. Rooster. He appeared out of no where first off. There was bust and he just popped out from it! It was like he heard people and was like… That’s my Qu. I need to put on a show! He ruffled his feathers like he was the master! It was so cute!!
Back to this fella. Back to putting on a show. This part was awesome though. He kept rotating left to right and back again. It was seriously like he knew everyone was looking and wanted to show his feathers off… Not that I can blame him.
The American Bald Eagle was adopted ad the bird symbol of the United States in 1782. They are beautiful creatures and majestic. The American Bald Eagle was actually endangered at one point but as of 08.09.07 they were removed from the federal list of threatened and endangered species!
How could I not share this? Pop-Pop, Grandmom, and Jaiden. <3
While walking through the zoo, I tried to photograph the plaques with each animal. I wanted to be sure I knew what was what. There are so many different species it can be hard to keep up. If I am correct, this little fella is a Howler Monkey. He was just hanging out when we passed by. I personally think he is just darling!
Mr. Camel had no interest in turning around… So all I got was his butt! HAHAHA. I was able to get an okay shot of him eating though. =) He was hungry!
This Bison was just happy to follow the rest of his gang. It was so funny because they literally just followed each other around!
These African Lions were beautiful! I was sad I couldn’t have gotten a better shot. It was a but crowded near these guys and it was almost impossible for me to get a shot of them. Mr. was enjoying himself in the sun when she followed and started licking his head. =P
Capybara…. Basically, it’s a giant rodent! HAHA He’s actually cute. Google them! Not as ugly as rodents! It reminds me a GIANT silly looking guinea pig.
There was a reptile exhibit but we somehow skipped over it. However I spotted these fella’s while crossing over a bridge! I love turtles! They are so cute!
Bears are just cool creatures! This guy was pretty cool, he just kept pacing and standing. He kept doing it over and over. =)
I believe this little guy was a Marmoset. He was seriously the tiniest thing I had seen. I just wanted to scoop him up and take him home with me. =)
I don’t know what kind of bird this was. I didn’t see a plaque or anything and I am pretty sure it was a shared home. He just sat there the entire time. Just Chillin..
My dad ad Jaiden going over the Pathway to Diversity bridge. This is just love here!
This Ostrich was just hanging out! Didn’t care to do anything and I don’t blame him… it was hot!
The Giraffe’s and Ostriches shared the same area. They had so much room to roam and I love the feeder for the Giraffe! I thought that was pretty cool! You can grab food from above or under. =)
My baby boy in front of the Zebra’s. He had such a great time and smiled the entire time. Well almost. He was hungry by the end and just wanted food! Haha Boys are boys!
The Zebra’s were just hanging out eating. They are seriously so pretty though!!
As we were coming to the end of The Cape May County Zoo we came across the Red Fox. I don’t know about you, but he is just a beauty! That color and they way he shined in the sun!!
Lastly was the Patagonian Mara, which is also, basically, a large rodent! Haha. I don’t know, I thought they were cute! =P But that’s just me!
As you can see Our Trip to Cape May County Zoo was fun! We got to see a great group of different species and learned a lot about them. This wasn’t everything that was there either. When we were there the Snow Leopard’s exhibit was being set up and they are there now. I believe a few of the animals have been moved around too and there are more new species there. I can’t way to go back to The Cape May County Zoo.
We had so much fun and over all it was just a great time! And before I forget, the zoo is free. All they ask for is donations. I think that is probably my favorite part. You are able to enjoy a day out with your family for little money. No worries about spending $10 on a ticket for all your kids and even more for adults.
All donations are appreciated! Be sure to check out their website! There is so much information about them and I hope you have the pleasure of visiting like we did!
