Especially now that they're on a summer break from school and we're not leaving for the holidays untill another week it seemed like a good idea to keep them from getting bored in the house!

At the tiger cage Calgary

Visiting a zoo is always great for the kids so they really enjoyed our visit to the Calgary Zoo. The best thing about this zoo besides the fact that it is enormous and you wont find a lot of time to get bored is that all the animals can be found in habitats which recreate all the different continents.

You will find the Canadian Wildlife in one section and African or Australian animals in their own space. Also the information panels were really helpful and educational. The kids loved the giant animal statues and kept asking for more pictures while they climbed inside a giant kangaroo's pouch:)
