A New Home for the Elephants & Family Day at the Zoo

Wichita Zoo

We visited the Wichita Zoo with our daughter and granddaughter. We were delighted to see the new area, recently opened, that allows the elephants room to roam.

Occasionally an elephant was in fairly close view.

I was fascinated to see the elephants pick up sticks with their trunks and then strip the bark off with their mouth.

The lion had a royal spot on a rock.

The flamingos provided a colorful scene.

And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” And it was so. And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the livestock according to their kinds, and everything that creeps on the ground, according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:24-25
