Lowry Park Zoo, Tampa

The Lowry Park Zoo is a like a large, beautifully landscaped garden. This pond and parrot shelter is near the entrance.

Here are some birds in the Asian Garden.

A manatee in the aquarium.

What's a trip to Florida without seeing some flamingos?

We couldn't find the cheetah in this habitat. I took the picture to get a shot of the white bird with the curved beak. These birds are all over our neighborhood. They poke holes in the lawn looking for munchies. After we got home and looked at the photos on the computer screen we found the cheetah! It's napping in the concrete tube. (You can click on the pictures to see larger versions.) The zoo can be a lot like a "Where's Waldo?" cartoon.
