Some Animals at the National Zoo

While we were in Washington D.C. over the weekend, we spent a good, long day at the National Zoo. We are a family of animal lovers and zoo enthusiasts--and the National Zoo in D.C. is a world-class zoo. And FREE!

First on our list were the giant Panda Bears. The National Zoo is one of only two zoos in the United States that even has Pandas. They were amazing.

And here are a couple of kooks posing as Pandas.

Ah, the Bald Eagle--that beautiful symbol of freedom!

And some very strange women posing as bald eagles.

Here is the adorable Prairie Dog, who spends much of his time burrowing in the ground.
Man, there are some real weirdos in Washington D.C.!

The otter is ever playful and sociable...

...sort of like these frolicking sisters.

But the Elephant stands supreme!

We raise our trunks in a mighty salute to our pachyderm friends.

Certainly, the serious family members would have no part in our posing fun...
