At the Zoo, Too

Much to Do at the Los Angeles Zoo

My son and I so enjoyed our last helping of the Zoo's Toddler Totes program that we recently went back for another helping. We were delighted to have Megan as our teacher again. 

The theme this time was Tons of Teeth. The kids learned how animals use their teeth, and and took a peek at fossil--and real--jaws.

On our stroll with Megan, we got another good look at Reggie the alligator and the silverback (Gorilla).

We've signed up for next month's class on "animal costumes." More on Toddler Totes.

On your next trip to the Zoo, check out the native plants  around the perimeter of the parking lot.  I enjoyed seeing matilija poppy and sages blossoming underneath the oak and sycamore trees.

If you have extra time, sample some of these Griffith Park attractions: the Merry-Go-Round and the nearby Shane's Inspiration Universal Access Playground. My son also loves the pony rides and the adjacent Griffith Park and Southern Railroad. Cluster these activities for a fun afternoon with friends and/or family. Click here for a Griffith Park hike.
