San Angelo TX (Low 59 Cloudy Late Storms High 79)

Catching up on our stay in Abilene. We finally had a gorgeous day and decided to go to the Abilene Zoo, a small 13 acre zoo with over 800 animals from over 200 species. 

It was a gorgeous day

We of course like cats of all sizes, especially since we see the same poses from our 3 not so wild cats. Here is Havar a white Bengal Tiger

An ocelot

Cougar or puma

We also like birds, here is a red tailed hawk

A peregrine falcon

A stork

A flamingo

Other colorful birds

Then there were the traditional exhibits, the giraffe

Black rhino


Guanaco, a camelid native South America.

Although it was a smaller zoo it was still neat. They have plans to add an African exhibit in the upcoming years.

It was a great day at the zoo! 

Our slideout motor is on order and we should be on the road again early next week.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Thanks so much for my zoo fix. I love visiting zoos, but Paul not so much. I am going to ask Carrie if she will go with me to the Houston Zoo. I need to do some research first. Great photos.

  2. I've never seen a Guanaco before. Love his/her legs. Sure hope that motor comes in and you can get that slide fixed.

  3. Enjoyed your visit to the zoo! Glad you had good weather to sight see! Thinking about you today, as we have RAIN here in AZ...and we see that you are right in the middle of the frozen mix! Stay warm! It is cool here, and very wet! But--just rain....Thinking of you guys! Bitty and Rupert send their hugs!
