Zoos have been the traditional places to see animals not indigenous to your area. But more and more, new types of attractions are appearing where you can see animals in a more natural state. Dallas, Texas has the World Aquarium right in the heart of downtown. With the tropical rain forest and aquariums, you get experience the animals in a unique complex that feels more natural than a typical zoo. Birds flying about, sloths sleeping in trees and monkeys swinging about add to the three ring circus. These flamingos were just a small sampling of the larger group that were close by at the base of the rain forest. I’m wondering if their little friends watching are hoping for some dinner crumbs or if they’re enjoying the beauty of these fine birds also.
