Hubby's Ultimate Sacrifice - Post 2 - Richmond Metro Zoo

Here we go with our first review of one of the aquariums/zoos we have visited.  Decided to start with this one as it is our most recent and is fresh in my mind.

The pros - you can get very close to many of the zoo critters which is great.  There were lots of cute babies to see.  Some of the enclosures were vast and beautiful - the place where they keep the giraffes was amazing.  There were lots of interactive exhibits - giraffes, budgies, camels, etc.

The cons - the price was a bit steep for the size of the zoo.  Some of the enclosures were small (although I think they are slowing making their way around the zoo to upgrade.  Some of the enclosures were drab for lack of a better word - not very scenic.

All in all I enjoyed this zoo very much.  Here are a few of my favorite still shots - these are also included in the video....enjoy:
