Today we went to the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens. The zoo is very rustic and it feels wild, which we love. There’s over 125 species of animals at the zoo, but favorite part of the day was getting to feed the Asian Elephants. One Elephant, Maude was 63 years old and weighed 6,400 lbs! We’ve never gotten that close up the an elephant before, and it was really cool (you can do this too on weekends at 2pm for only $9.50 extra!). We also really loved how much we could tell the trainers loved the elephants.
New at the zoo this year is ZOOMair, a self guided ropes course that takes you through and above the trees. It’s unique b/c it’s the only ropes course that we have done that you’re actually up there without a guide (they are on the ground) so you’re pretty much in control of everything! It’s a great workout and although it’s challenging, it’s still a lot of fun. When you go, make sure you wear closed toed shoes and drink a lot of water before/during/and after because you will be SWEATING!
