Sunday, We all went to the Naples Zoo. It was the last day of their special deal to get the yearly membership for the family at 1/2 off. Basically it cost us a few more dollars than a one time visit and we can go free for the rest of the year. I love the word "free".
1) Monkeys have tails, and Apes do not.
2) Spider monkeys have prehensile tails that they can use to peel a banana.
3) Fosa's (pronounced Foose's) are carnivores that feed on mostly Lemurs. They live in Madagascar and a really large percentage of the animals found on Madagascar, are not found anywhere else in the world. Like Lemurs, they are specific only to Madagascar.
4) A male Lion's mane is directly related to the amount of Testosterone he has. We learned that right after Caeden asked why the daddy lion has a mane and the mommy lion doesn't. And I answered, "God made them that way." :)
We want to make it an family outing 1x/month. The Fosa is the newest exhibit, and in Feb. they are hoping to have a Black Bear exhibit. The kids also enjoyed the many playgrounds at the ZOO.
