The Alaska Zoo

Earlier this month, Eric and I ended up going into Anchorage for a few days.  We had the chance to go to the Anchorage Zoo.  They have some pretty cool animals there that they don't normally have in zoos.  We also don't have some of the normal zoo animals (monkeys)!

The first picture here is the sleepy brown bear.  It just happened to roll over and "pose" for this picture.
Next we have a Dall Sheep.  I just had to take this picture.  It cracks me up every time I see it.  Look at that goofy looking "smile" on his face.
This next picture are the famous Musk Ox.  These guys are not very tall.  Maybe 4'.  They are cool though! 
Here is a polar bear.  Not sure if it's male or female.  It was restless in the enclosure.  Kept walking up to the white fence and tossing its' head back then walking around going back to the fence and repeating this habit. 
This next animal is only found in Alaska.  It is a Sitka Deer.  It sure was a pretty little guy.  
This pretty little kitty is a snow leopard.  I'm not sure how they keep it cool during the summer.  The like alot of snow, hence the name.  It was also restless like the polar bear.
This guy would not stand still for a picture.  I think the only time it stopped moving is when it had to pee!  It was fun to see him run around the cage.  This is a wolverine.  Pretty cool, but not as pretty as Eric's though! 
Finally, I think this is probably the mandatory photo that a lot of people have to take when they are at the zoo!  That was our trip to the Alaska Zoo.  I hope you have enjoyed your/our journey.
