Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens-Festival of Lights 2010

Earlier this week, we took a trip to the zoo to see the Festival of Lights.  It was super crowded, but we still managed to have a good time.  I think the favorite of the group was the new group of manatees.  It was feeding time and it was really interesting to watch them eat.

The zoo also recently got new Komodo Dragons.  The dragons kill their prey by biting it.  The bite then becomes infected and the dragon will follow the prey around until it dies.  Then they will eat it.  This guy was huge.  Hope he doesn't get out!

 I really wanted to see the elephants and was excited to see that this fellow was hungry and was eating some straw.  The whole crowd gasped when he raised up his trunk to get some straw.  He was pretty cool.

I was absolutely unable to get a good picture of the manatees, so this picture of fish will have to stand in its place. 

The only thing missing from this zoo is a hippopotamus.  I want one for Christmas (right?!).
