About three weeks ago, we visited the PITTSBURGH ZOO & PPG AQUARIUM and Missy got to take part in one of her favorite pastimes...petting animals. Here are more photos from the zoo to supplement the one's Missy took and shared in the previous post...
I like the SURPRISED LOOK on this fish's face:

When we were in Pittsburgh, we got to go to the zoo with my family. We had a great time seeing all the animals, and I had not been to the zoo in ages!
I have to say, it was a very hot day, so the animals were trying to cool off when they could. We watched the tiger as he eased into the water to meet his buddy.
Super cool off tiger! Good for you! You go!
Check out this cute little fellow cooling off in his pond! What a cute brown bear.
The penguin encounter is really fun. The penguins were really happy and playful when we visited.
By the time we arrived tot he octopus, he was having some dinner. Check out the webbing on the left side of this photo - I had never seen the octopus so active! You can even see his tentacles near the top.
I love watching the seahorses, too. So graceful and pretty.
Pittsburgh Zoo has a new baby otter! So everyone wanted to get a peek at him. He cried an awful lot, but look how adorable he is!
he moved really fast, so it was difficult to get a really nice picture of him. He really looks silly in this one!
Then it was time for the seals to eat. They were just as noisy as the baby otter!
What a sweet face!
Then I got to pet Buttercup, a very friendly white tailed deer! What a beauty!
And so did Monica!
But Dad only pet this goat. What a beauty!
