Lions and Tigers and Bears

Oh my!

I worked at the Tulsa Zoo during my last summer in high school.  It wasn't a glamorous job, but every little kid and kid at heart needed ice cream on hot days and it was my job to serve them with a smile.  Once the zoo closed, we all left our food stations and walked around the zoo together, enjoyed the animals, and really learned how a zoo runs and what it takes to provide for the animals.  I got to know many of the zoo keepers, all of which were very, very cool.  I love learning about the "behind the scenes" elements (that goes for anything, really). It was such a great summer.

When we moved to Denver, going to the zoo was top on my list (since I love them so much).  So a couple weekends ago my friend Rachel and I made a whole day out of it, thankfully she's just as crazy about zoos.


  1. Whenever I go to a zoo, I always wonder what it's like to be a zoo keeper... To get close & personal with the animals.

    The coolest zoo I've ever been to, was the San Diego Zoo. :)
