I promised more, and here they are! (Click here to see part one from last week.)

Again, this is the Metro Richmond Zoo, which is a fun, interactive place to hang out.

You can feed the animals pretty much everywhere, but the giraffe stations are the most popular.  ↑

Marvel Superhero Island

At Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure’s Marvel Superhero Island is colorful, larger-than-life and full of fun detail! I didn’t get to spend a lot of time in that area the day I was there (I shopped and got my picture taken with a couple heroes. Well, I waited for a while for Cap.), but I was able to snap a few pictures.

So this set of pictures spans a few years. Turns out I never edited too many or uploaded the older shots, so I’m throwing them in here. If you’ve seen any of my zoo posts, you know I love the big cats, so I’m trying to limit the sheer amount of them in this post. Because I took so, so many.

The Metro Richmond Zoo has a large variety of animals, which is awesome! It can be rather difficult to take pics through the enclosures, but the amount of different animals and the interactive feel make it a fun day.

They’ve got a train you can ride inside an enclosure with antelope and gazelle, an air lift that takes you over the rhinos, two walk-in aviaries, and feeding stations throughout the entire zoo. I believe the last time I stopped by they had added a ropes course as well.
