Wonderful Santa Barbara

I counted 23 cranes nests in these trees.

A day at The Santa Barbara Zoo is a wonderful day. The Zoo is located just across the street from the beach so is nice and cool, no glaring heat and baked animals. They actually seem to be more active. Now I’m not one for Zoo’s I actually get rather sad looking at some of the animals, but somehow this little zoo is a real gem. It’s small in scope and exhibits, and the “cages” are not really cage looking, but rather environments. There is a portion of the zoo that is in an aviary flight path, you can tell by the white bird poo’s everywhere. They have actually set up an area for the vultures that they have flying room in. The lions are on beautiful green grass in a nice enclosure, just across the street from the beach within roar distance. I can only imagine what it sounds like at night. I went with a 3 and 6 yr. old so in their eyes it’s a pretty cool place. All in all a cute smaller zoo with style.
