Hogle Zoo



The Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake is the largest zoo in Utah, but it's pretty small in comparison to other big city zoos.  It was established in 1931 and has an interesting history.  We really wanted to see one of the zoo's latest editions, Zuri, the baby elephant.  Who knew a baby elephant could be so stinkin' cute??



Mom was enjoying breakfast while Zuri played with her ball.











Moms and babies are the same all over the world.  To see what's happening elsewhere, check out My World Tuesday.

The perfect level of adorability to brighten up my grey and boring Monday!

Ohh!! I'm so jealous. I went to the zoo earlier this year and I didn't get to see the new baby elephant. Adorable!

The only thing I miss about being 6-7 hours from any major city is I never get to go to the zoo anymore. :( I hope to visit this zoo someday!

Looks like this baby is angling for a job in the circus.

Oh Loran, He's so precious. Reminds me of the little book I used to read to my sons, named the "Saggy, Baggy Elephant"... Remember that one????

Thanks!
Hugs,

Oh MY that is cute! Our zoo has a new baby elephant, too. Her name is Daisy. I'm not a zoo fan, but after seeing this, I think I might need to visit. (My husband and girls go to the Hogle Zoo every summer while I'm at my Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake.)
