The Houston Zoo has been hyping up there upcoming arrival of Gorillas. As zoo members we had the chance to get into the exhibit early!
The Gorilla habitat is located in the African area of the zoo right across from the chimpanzees. I was actually really surprised at just how big this area really was.
There was a sprawling walkway leading up to an enclosed building which housed warthogs.
This then led us out into an outside walkway area which we could view the gorillas from above. It was pretty amazing! Although our time was short lived due to the demands of a toddler-typical. Row loved looking out of the gated area.
We then walked into another enclosed area which had an inside area for the Gorillas with trees and glass for us to easily look into.
They also had two life sized gorilla statues in the room along with some artifacts. Row was not having it.
I took her out of the wagon and placed her next to the gorilla statue for a picture but when she turned around she screamed and ran like a maniac into the crowd….I guess they are realistic and rather large to a 2 year old.
Go check out the new exhibit! It really was amazing. Another fun thing to do for the upcoming summer.
Row is wearing the Roundabout Bowie from Matilda Jane’s Serendipity line.
