I went to the zoo today, because why not? Also because it’s going to be in the 80s this coming week, and today is seems to be the last ‘cool’ day for a while – we topped off at about 73 degrees.
I went by myself. There were A LOT OF CHILDREN. And also a lot of ignorant parents – seriously, I can’t even count the amount of times I heard parents tell their kids misinformation about various animals. In the Outback section, I heard a lady tell her grandkid that “the kangaroos are coming out of their kookaburra!!!” and I facepalmed because we were looking at wallabies and wallabies do not come out of BIRDS.
But alas. There were zebras in the not Outback section, where I heard other ignorant comments, but was too happy to see a zebra so close to remember them.
