Field Trip to the National Zoo

We scheduled a guided tour of the Amazonia Exhibit at the National Zoo. The week prior to our adventure was *gorgeous* The days leading up to and including our field trip were not so gorgeous. Thankfully Amazonia is an indoor exhibit so we were able to march onward.

As usual I spent a lot of time keeping track of Shane

It was feeding time while we were there so we stayed at this tank for quite a while and watched the fish eat.

This beetle is actually a mosaic of other beetles. Gross and intriguing at the same time.

The big kids went into a conference room for a class so Shane and I hung out in the hallway and munched chips
They have a hands on science observation area attached to the exhibit so we spent quite a bit of time in there.

After we munched some lunch, we sprinted through a couple of exhibits. The pandas were out. Sadly the elephant house is still under construction

Ella is just a bit smaller than a Silverback Gorilla

Another fun and exciting field trip!
