Just a week ago, it was -11F and we were unable to go to the Zoo. Today, a 70 degree turn in weather and almost all of Pittsburgh was at the Zoo. Daniel, his friend and fellow Scout, Luke, ventured out into the beautiful weather to visit the Aquarium so they could complete a requirement for their upcoming Oceanography Merit Badge.
After the boys toured the Aquarium and took their notes, we had a little time to go see some of the exhibits in the Asian Forest and African Savannah sections of the Zoo. We worked our way to the lions and for the first time in all my visits to the Zoo, they were vocal and active, Two large males played and then serenaded everyone for about 10 mins. It was an amazing sight and sound.
It's better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.
