At the Chahinkapa Zoo {Wahpeton}

Earlier in the week, Monday to be exact, I took the girls to the Chahinkapa Zoo in Wahpeton, ND. It’s is just under an hour drive there. I happen to like this zoo better than our “small” zoo in town. The Wahpeton Zoo has a few more exotic animals, which we love! ๐Ÿ™‚ We had a fun time there, although it was super hot that day. We packed a lunch and headed out! Here are just a few photos from our time at the zoo….

This zoo is laid out nicely..lots of paths to walk…

There was a little baby duck that just kept hanging around the girls. They even got to pet it!

While we were there, we got to watch Orangutan Training. It was neat!

I wasn’t able to get a photo of my favorite {the tigers} they were trying to stay cool in the shade. ๐Ÿ˜‰ There were many more animals there, I just didn’t take a photo of every one. {I’ve done that in the past} ๐Ÿ˜‰ We had a great time, and hope to go back again when the weather is a little cooler.

Before we left, I let the girls pick out their favorite {stuffed} animal. Jadyn chose the mama & baby river otter, and Jacey chose the cottontop tamarin.
