I was pretty impressed with how close we could get to the rhinos now...#WIN4LPZ! Too bad this particular rhino decided he wanted to put out a none existent fire. I'm pretty sure he peed a few gallons...but I digress. I figured Lowry is now finding creative ways for raising money because there was a sign stating "$2 to feed the Rhinos". YOU GO LOWRY FINANCE DEPARTMENT, MAKE THAT MONEY!
I'm more excited because of the fact I got to spend time with my mom. If you don't know how she is from those previous posts on Facebook, then you haven't gotten a chance to get to know a very interesting person. lol She is very blunt; she says what she wants no matter who is listening and I love that about her. Every time we passed the bird cages, without fail, she would say "Ewww is smells so bad, somebody light a candle". I'm like mom do you see candles around here...SMH. She managed to complain about most of the animals and at the same time was so excited to see them up close, well except for the rhinos 'cause she was not having that. I told her I wanted a squirrel monkey which, after glancing at one, she said "Awww they are so cute, they're like an ugly adorable cute". Mom what is an ugly adorable cute? LOL. NEVER A DULL MOMENT WITH THIS LADY
And no zoo day is complete without seeing a Meerkat. I love these little guys. They're always looking out for nothing. I wanted to yell "YOUR IN A ZOO, THERE ARE NO PREDATORS COMING!" But the little guy's face looked so focused I just couldn't deprive him of his determination to spot an eagle or something.
All in all we had a blast. Lowry definitely isn't the San Diego or New York Zoo but if your a Tampa, FL native then its a good place to enjoy a day with friends and family!!
