A wonderful new exhibit has just opened at our Columbus Zoo...."Heart of Africa".
You might want to bring binoculars for animals that are in the distance. It's quite a big area, a 43 acre addition. Highlights from my visit included seeing wildebeest and gazelle running across the African plains.... that's what it looked like!
Check out how small we humans are compared to a giraffe at a feeding station
and how they form a tripod to eat from the ground.
Go all the way to the end of this big exhibit to see fast, fun monkeys....this one's the king of the jungle.
Yes, he's a king. Mother Nature gives us interesting colors.
I haven't included photos of every animal you can see in Heart of Africa, hoping you'll plan your visit soon.
I got to chat with Jack Hanna about Heart of Africa, click on the arrow below to hear the interview. The gang at the Columbus Zoo have out-done themselves, I know this took YEARS of hard work and dedication. Thank you!
