{Not Quite} Wordless Wednesday: My Favorite Animals

A few weeks ago, when we took our San Diego family honeymoon trip, we spent a full day at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. We had an amazing experience, which included a cart safari through the African animals exhibit. There were far too many animals to include on a Wordless Wednesday post {I’m sure I’ll get around to blogging about it eventually though} so I decided to focus on my favorite animals ever today.

My favorite animals {in no particular order}:

Cheetah Run San Diego Zoo Safari Park

When we watched the cheetah run at the Safari Park, I may have teared up a bit. It has always been my dream to see a cheetah run, since I did a report on them in the third grade. These cats are ridiculously amazing.

Okapi at San Diego Zoo Safari Park

They have the top half of a horse {or at least donkey} & the bottom half of a zebra, yet their closest relative is the giraffe. It’s for that confusing fact alone that I love okapis, though they’re pretty cool anyway.

Squirrel at DisneyMoviesEvent

I lived in Chicago until I was 6, where squirrels are everywhere. I grew up feeding them our stale bread & watching them while I played on my swingset. Then we moved to Vegas, where we have NO squirrels. My heart broke. Now whenever I travel anywhere that has squirrels {so almost anywhere} it becomes a squirrel watching expedition. {Like in the photo above, which was taken while I was on the #DisneyMoviesEvent press trip in LA.}

Bella Notte

More specifically, this girl right here, though I’ve never met a cold, wet nose I didn’t love. I have had a few dogs in my life, including a childhood dog that still holds a heavy piece of my heart, but Bella Notte is right up there with him- and she’s still around, so bonus points.

For the record, I love just about every animal ever, so this list really could go on for days. But I picked the ones that make me squeal when I see pictures of them on the internet, because that’s pretty much how I judge how much I care about things.

What’s your favorite animal?

    I understand totally. I’m a HUGE animal lover too… and bird lover. That’s one reason I live on a farm. I worked at a pet store for many, many years before the farm, just to quell the ache of not being able to have everything, lol. I love the big cats, they are so graceful, and squirrels, well, you’ve seen my crochet… We have 7 dogs here on the farm, and two are my personal chaperones.
