Full and content we left for the Philadelphia Zoo, which just happens to be Americas first Zoo. Arriving on such a beautiful day, it was already packed. Thanks to Michael and Delia who have a Zoo membership, we received some special perks. No waiting in lines for tickets, to feeding the Lorikeets.

We started by visiting Big Cat Falls. These Cats are Michael, Delia and Stone's favorite of the animals. The cats, while graceful, are very powerful and athletic. New this year, they have the first-in-the-world animal trail system, called the Big Cat Crossing. This was pretty cool. You would be walking and above your head , you could see the Big Cats on the crossing.

My favorite was the Primates, most importantly the Western Lowland Gorilla. These animals are so human like. As they looked at you, I would wonder what they are thinking. Then again maybe I don't want to know.

Time to feed the Lorikeets. We are given nectar and go inside where the birds are waiting. Quickly they gather around us knowing they are about to be feed.
