Today was a beautiful day, which meant…ZOO!! I never get tired of visiting zoos and the National Zoo is great because it’s free! I have been an animal lover my entire life and I am particularly fond of the more unique animals including okapis and tapirs (If you’re not familiar with these animals, you should look them up!). My love of animals is what led me to become a vegetarian more than four years ago. Honestly, I don’t even miss meat or fish! There are so many great fake meats out there and more places are offering meat-free items in their restaurants making it relatively easy to be a vegetarian nowadays. Now, back to the zoo! I saw the lions, cheetahs, tigers, monkeys and many more today! As usual, there were a few animals, including the Spectacled bear, that chose not to turn around so the only shots I got were butt shots. Also, the orangutan began climbing his large jungle-gym and decided he needed to take a poo at the very top. Luckily, I don’t think his #2 landed on anybody!

I chose to wear my light underwater jacket today because I thought it’d be fitting! I actually had quite a few options when it came to animal apparel! I just have a soft spot for anything animal related! (I still own numerous stuffed animals too..I even have a stuffed okapi and tapir.)
