We started our trip with the Desert Dome!
It looks like the Outback of Australia when you first walk in.
Even down to the kookaburra sitting in the old gum tree!
Then we moved on to our old stomping grounds!
The kids in the Sonoran Desert of their home state Arizona!
We were able to see our favorite Javalina! Just don't call him pig!
They also had their nocturnal exhibit in the basement of the Desert Dome. It is really creepy because there are lots of bats, snakes, and spiders. There is even a swamp section with some other scary animals.
The alligator really freaked me out in the dark.
But we also were able to see some adorable beaver busy at work.
The sharks were really cool to see floating around the tunnel tank. This is a side view of the end of the tunnel tank.
The kids were happy to take a ride on the carousel.
These animals were gigantic!
It was another fantastic trip to the zoo! While I was research the contents of this post I learned that the Henry Doorly Zoo is the 4th best zoo in the U.S. as rated by user ratings on Trip Advisor. I think it is probably the best though! I highly recommend a trip to Omaha if only to see this incredible zoo!
