Wild Animal Park


One of the great things about living in San Diego besides the weather is all of the things to do in southern california. One of which is the Wild Animal Park in Escondido. This place is about a 15 20 minute drive from my house. The park is 1,300 acres. It's so cool, you take a tram around the park and the animals are just out chilling in a a semi- normal habitat. The animals that don't get along are separated and there are different habitats for different animals to explore. The lion exhibit was by far my favorite, the two momma's in the pride just had seven cubs between them. They were asleep when we first walked up and then the BIG poppa lion woke up scratched his face and just stared at me, here is the picture, it was amazing. He didn't take his eyes off me for a couple of minutes. The elephant exhibt was also great, i love how the people are behind the fences and not the other way around. Here is Aslan and i with the elephants. I didn't get any of them in the deer petting zoo but Aslan was so cute he kept squating down to look at the deers in their eyes like he was trying to talk to them:) Lastly the kids rode the animal carosel( Aslan's first time). It was a great last day with Nana and Pop Pop, they left today. We'll miss you guys. So for any visitors to San Diego I would highly recommend a trip to the Wild Animal Park it is worth it to see some maginificant animals in their semi- natural habitat( are there palm trees in Africa?)
