SEPTEMBER Roger Williams Zoo

No school is complete without a field trip to the zoo. Especially if that zoo is Roger Williams Park Zoo where your Mom (and her Mom) grew up going to the zoo.

A few facts we learned that day that we didn't know were that:

The seal and the seal lion evolved from different land based mammals but developed similar lifestyles.

A male giraffe's spots get darker as he ages.

A snow leopard can jump 50 feet horizontally.

There was a quote for Theodore Roosevelt on a sign there, it said:

The nation behaves well if it treats its natural resources as assets
which it must turn over to the next generation increased; and not impaired in value.

This is my Mom at 85, we have a picture of her on this same dog at the age of 5!

Beautiful bald eagles.
