Wild Animal Park

Chris and I went to the Wild Animal Park on Easter and it was fantastic! It was an absolutely beautiful day and being spring all the little babies were out and about. We got to see a baby rhino, cheetah, giraffe, and lots of little baby antelope. I even got to pet some deer. It didn't take long to see most of the park, but it was really interesting. They explained how they were taking skin samples from Rhinos and putting them in their 'frozen zoo'. Essentially they are cryogenically freezing samples of animals in case of extinction with the hopes that the samples will someday help in recreating the animals.. pretty crazy stuff.
