Today we visit Animal Kingdom. This is Shawna's favorite park. I like it too.
After yesterday's really early start, we decided to go into the park later in the day and stayed for the projection on the tree of life.
Since our last visit was on a cold day (relative to Orlando) we hoped to see the baby Silver Back and some of the other animals that were not out earlier in the week.
Mom was a bit shy with the baby so we did not get a good view. Baby Grace is 9 months old. She is just now starting to stand and walk on her own but never is far from mom.
The family group is a breeding Male 39, two breeding females, a young female, two 5 year old males, and the baby. Almost as soon as we got to the viewing area, the 5 year olds were called in for training. They need to learn how to tolerate medical tests and other interactions with trainers. At that point, the rest of the group decided to follow leaving us with an empty exhibit. It was disappointing but we understood they like to stay together.
We stopped to see the meerkats.
The Gibbon monkeys have learned a new trick. At least, it was new for us.
Kevin! We got to see Kevin from UP!
At the end of the day, we watched some of the show on the "Tree of Life". It is always impressive.
