Every hour (on the half hour) the zoo features a show to educate you on the macaws. You get to experience their beauty close up and trust me they fly VERY close to your head too!
I think what I loved most was later in the day while we were walking around the zoo, the show was finished and a large gathering of macaws flew right above our head! Too quick to get my camera out, but trust me, it was a unique experience! They were in route flying to their home on the grounds …What I love about the zoo is how big the grounds are. It spreads people out and gives you the opportunity to experience all the different areas!Right after the show, I took a look at the map and made sure to plan out our visit. We had picked up tickets for the (FREE) dolphin show when we arrived so that was our next stop …
Those with me opted for the splash zone, but I sat a few rows back and fortunately didn’t get wet!
We also made our way to the oceans exhibit. This is one of my favorites (and not just because of the air conditioning!) mostly because you get the opportunity to touch a shark!
