Sierra Safari Zoo

It was such a beautiful day that I decided we should get out of the house and go somewhere outside. I chose the Sierra Safar Zoo over in Red Rock. We scooped up Kiernan's best friend and his brother and we took off to the zoo. I paid our entrance fee and bought an ice cream cone full of feed for each child and one for myself and we set off to see the animals. Our official "Greeters" made us feel plenty welcome with a hearty "Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawk!!" The peacocks were out in full force today. Several sat in the tree and across the wall separating the main house from the zoo.

We were all anxious to feed the deer but worked our way through the smaller displays up front.

This sloth fell asleep with his arm still on the branch. Not THAT is tired!
For future reference, deer like shoelaces

The white deer looks like it's laughing. He's probably laughing at Lexy cuz she has deer spittle on the backs of her hands.
It was a deer mosh pit!

What we were the most excited to see what the Zoo's newest large cat; the Liger "Kalika."

She looked at us lazily as we walked up like HEEEEEEY People! Once more people walked over to her cage she got super excited. Then she started acting like the 1 year old kitty she is. One of the big cat volunteers came to her fence and started talking to her. Her idea of playing with him is for him to turn his back to the fence and bang his hands against the chain link. She got a real intent look on her face and pounced!

Some of the other animals we enjoyed

All the peacocks we came across were big hussies and were speading their feathers for everyone. Very pretty!

We all got a little sunburned and drank a ton of water but had a good time.

No, I have no clue what those two are doing.
