Here is some information about the North Carolina Zoo.
~Located just south of Asheboro, the North Carolina Zoo is seated on a 1,500 tract of land in the Uwharrie Mountains. Approximately 500 acres of this property have been developed into one of the largest "natural habitat" zoos in the United States. You won't find cages made of steel and concrete here! Our animals are given enclosures that mimic their natural habitats to include trees, ponds, rocks, grass and dirt.~
The Flamingos are my favorite, well along with the Puffins, that I could not get a picture of!
I hope you enjoyed some of the pictures from our Zoo trip. If any of you live anywhere close to The Piedmont of North Carolina you should make a trip. Its a really great experience and its fairly cheap!
Hope everyone has a GREAT day and Happy Gardening!
